Synopsis

Ten years after his documentary Jour après jour, Jean-Paul Fargier reopens the chapter about Jean-Daniel Pollet in a new page of the series Cinéaste de notre temps by André S. Labarthe and Janine Bazin. Fargier brings together the recurring obsessions and reasons behind Pollet’s films and lets them talk to each other: Greece, Claude Melki, his screenplays, fiction versus non-fiction, movement versus static images, the idea of the so-called “concentrated duration.” Viewer, critic, collaborator, and admirer of Pollet’s work: Fargier creates a personal and passionate conversation punctuated with fragments from his films, interviews, and behind the scenes. [rm]

Director statement

“Words are the main theme. The words Jean-Daniel used in his images, documentaries, or fictional films. The words he shared with the writers, playwrights, and dialogue-writers he worked with. The movie itself is made of words, and musings about words. In a way, it’s a portrait of a specific set of words that would always pop up in Jean-Daniel’s work: ‘abyme’, ‘amour’, ‘association’, ‘compréhension’…”
