La Reprise is an ongoing exercise begun on April 21, 2013.
Every week, a subsequent minute is produced consisting of scenes shot that week along with archival material from the past years. Footage and sound are consistently recorded with the same single device.
The film may distort, but there is always a presumption that something exists, or did exist, which is what was recorded.
The sequences are neither true nor false, they integrate various degrees of theatricality and authenticity. They become portraits of an agitated immersion in the perpetual process of systematic indexing and gathering, and of close observations.
I am a passenger, a witness to recurrences and patterns.
This continuous collage of archives is the tension. The narrative is disconnected from the sum of its parts, and elaborates on successes and failures. Each screening becomes a unique occasion to view the film as the succession of each 1min weekly film is added every time.
