Les États généraux du film documentaire 2013 Rediffusions Face à face

Face à face
Eric Pauwels
1989 - Belgique - Couleur - 40'

Face à face is considered by many to be nothing more than a "simple recording" of a performance by Michèle Anne De Mey. The spirit of the performance is certainly sublimely reproduced, but there is more. Face à face is, to some extent, the synthesis of Pauwels's earlier experiments. Pauwels attentively observes the dancers without them being aware of his presence. In filming their subtle movements he finds a way to reconcile observation and participation.
