Stefano Canapa at IFFR
De un vastisimo mar
De un vastisimo mar could be considered as a film in the making, a real-time film performance, about exile as a relationship.
Shot in enchanting black-and-white 35mm, Elisa Ribes’ choreography invites the Mediterranean sea to dance with her. The forms and rhythms of landscape that emerge appear to respond to her request.
The Sound Drifts
Hypnotising audio tracks dance to the soundtrack of Canapa’s previous film about Jérôme Noetinger, Metamkine’s sound artist. Cinema for your ears!
Slices of black radish on unexposed film lead to effective explosions of light right through the dark, photochemical emulsion.
Dialogue between cathode-ray tubes, electrical signals and photochemical particles. Sound and light waves vibrate in overwhelming unity.
