Les États généraux du film documentaire 2009 Uncertain Viewpoints Archipels Nitrate

Archipels Nitrate
Claudio Pazienza
2009 - Belgique - Couleur et Noir & Blanc - 62'

"Intimate and personal portrait of the Royal Belgian Cinémathèque (recently renovated and renamed Cinematek). And on that screen, flashes of the world, an idea of History, of beauty. On that screen, a congruent portion of humanity. I am what I have seen, said Matisse. But all images do not remain intact. And even less so, the self image. Time permeates them, spoils, martyrises them. And this delicate skin — this layer of nitrate — is the symptom. Nitrate Archipelagos talks of cinema and time in the form of a visual symphony in which a hundred films partake of a unique and identical journey".
