RM#1 – Amintire

Movie made with Jonathan Larcher (EHESS, PhD Student on « Politics of visual ethnography») with our collective « Brèches ».

This movie starts from images taken at a romani birthday in Romania. At the time of their digitalisation, six years later, these images happened to be damaged (glitches, drop out, gap between image and sound).

Even if we could have tried to restore those images, we chose to emphasize those glitches, in order to produce a texture and to figure the matter of the atmosphere dwelling in the images, colliding those pictures with the archive of judicial photography made by Carl Durheim in 1852-53.

Thus, we try to highlight motives, gestures and emotions which overflow the figurative convention of the anthropologic investigation.
