Traducing a phantasm of its director, Loving Black is constructed from extracts of an erotic film in which beautiful black men dressed as cow-boys embrace each other. With a subjective camera viewpoint and a dose of self derision, the director sets out in search of such partners. During his unbridled journey, he is submitted to a swirl of blazing images that come to stir up his desire. This film in a way pays homage to various cinematographic styles, such as western, gay porn or blaxploitation. It ends up with a tender and joyful encounter, accompanied by the bells of a XXX country version of Soeur Sourire’s Dominique.

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.
