Les États généraux du film documentaire 2017 Fragment of a filmmaker’s work: Guy Sherwin Prelude

Guy Sherwin
1980-1996 - Royaume-Uni - Noir & Blanc - 12'

Prelude draws us into a state of transfixedness through the static gaze of its camera. Almost an essay in creating – in quietly compelling – a state of attention through a particular use of sound and image, Prelude draws our attention to the miraculous capacity of film to re-assemble a reality which we customarily take for granted. Here the reality before the camera, itself carefully assembled, is reworked as if it were memory (the footage comprising the film was shot in 1980 and 1985, but constructed into a film only recently).” (Nick Collins)
