This little walk happened after her show, late at night, tired and drunk, and it think it reflects perfectly what i’ve been trying to capture for so long. Far from any gimmicky thing that people have been tempted to resume our take away shows project (’wow, a band playing in an elevator!’, mmm…), but going back towards, maybe, the idea of a filmmaker as evoked by Dziga Vertov, long long time ago. Think about it more than 5 minutes and maybe you won’t feel the previous sentence as pretentious as it seems.
For the past 3 months now i’ve been on the road, travelling and filming people i meet sometimes only for 10 minutes, exchanging some energies, portraying them, and trying to develop a certain idea of everyday creation through the cinema medium. I hope to continue like that for a long time, and this blog will be the receptacle of such images.
This film of Nikaido is my work at his simplest and, i hope, best. This is who i am now, I hope you’ll enjoy.
