Screening Copy: digital
The private life of several individuals is revealed in front of cameras settled in the bedrooms which they use. The film wonders about the role of a camera having a function of witness. Even if the electronic eye has difficulty in reviewing the reality of scenes offered to its glance without face, the camera tries gradually to approach a single individual. The camera entered frontally inside a hotel without facade until isolate one of the inhabitants of the hotel. The gesture will not be very appreciated.


Director: Pierre-Yves Cruaud

Collectif Jeune Cinéma

The Collectif Jeune Cinéma (Young Cinema Collective) is a filmmakers’ cooperative founded in Paris on June 12th 1971.

The vocation of the CJC is to distribute different and experimental films of all lengths, gathered in a catalogue that is continuously enriched by new works. This catalogue covers a very wide spectrum of aesthetics and cinematographic practices. For example, it is the only one to include experimental films made by children and young flimmakers (under 18 yo).

See distribution details here.

The CJC is also an archive for films and documents on experimental and different cinema.

The MNEME catalogue management tool you are currently browsing has been designed to provide maximum clarity and readability for both distribution and the archive. It meets international audiovisual item indexing standards (FIAF).

Each year, the CJC organizes the Festival des Cinémas Différents et Expérimentaux de Paris (a festival featuring different and experimental cinema in Paris) and schedules regular screenings each month in Paris or Île-de-France.
