Frameworks Acolyte Talk Fabrice Aragno


IFFR 2019


Since the preparations for Our Music (2004), Swiss filmmaker Fabrice Aragno has worked with Godard in various creative roles, ranging from cinematographer, editor, producer, location sound man to post-production specialist. In parallel, Aragno also develops his own audio-visual universe, one that alternates between old footage and new technologies, but always with a delicate, emotional core.

Starting his career as a lighting specialist and stage manager, Aragno also developed a special interest in puppetry. Switching to film, he was immediately selected for Cannes with his short graduation work Dimanche (1998). In the meantime, Aragno has explored a variety of film styles, with an occasional excursion into the field of media installation. Aragno will elucidate the original inspiration for Suite lacustre, and his motivation for making it both a short film and an installation that follows a random edit algorithm. As a creator, Arango doesn’t obey any rules, which probably earned him the respect of Godard.
