Take a scalpel, cut these words to keep only the re- prefix.
Make it your main character, a detective.
Place it among macabre words, dark phrases where the night keeps raining.
Once the operation is complete, the investigation can begin.

Records in the Hood

Rap is a permeable musical genre with cinema. French rap albums are full of sound scenes, where the singers have various roles to transcribe the city in which they lived. Purchase in a kebab, pickpocketing, telephone billing, graffiti on a cop car, sale of narcotics that goes wrong, all these auditory interstices slipped into their albums made me want to compose, only with this materials, the landscape of a suburb. "Records in the Hood" offer an auditory representation of a suburb fantasized by French rappers. But a blur slips into the pictorial interpretation of these interludes. Total simulacrum under surreal perfusion, the characters come alive in a shadow play decontextualizing these sounds in the multiple frames of an anthology of contemporary architecture. The deliberately offbeat tone removes the effects of reality induced in the words of these authors, leaving the solid stereotypes suburban bare in this setting so often swallowed by violence, the industry of hedonism, the cult of the body, that clips and media spread.

THE TRUTH ABOUT THE YEAR 2000

The year 2000 will ring in a few hours. The arrival of an IT bug will change everything that Harry has prepared to celebrate quietly this new year day with his wife Wendy.

Video consisted only of air plans of American cities, this found footage movie takes away his geography by replacing the actors by buildings with a doubtful accent. The French cinematographic aura sneaks in this colossal continent to compose a blockbuster which tries with great difficulty to equal his Hollywood colleagues.
