Filmmakers' Choice – Odyssey and Cosmic Resonance

CORPUS CALLOSUM, 2001

We are repeating the program for June that had to be cancelled due to technical problems. In Luc Moullet's La CABALE DES OURSINS (France 1992), abandoned strip mines appear next to volcanoes and pyramids. The director-cum-pataphysical cartographer creates a wasteland of the secret paths through his childhood memories. Opinions as to what is considered a historical monument, a magnificent natural landscape or industrial waste vary. I'm interested in the moment when the shift occurs, the "in-between" and its emotional consequences. CORPUS CALLOSUM (Michael Snow, Canada 2001) combines the realism of a normal metamorphosis in credible "real" inner spaces with "impossible" changes of form. In both films, the shift is a physical place, a fissure: a place of entrancement. Both films take the viewers to the equilibrium point between shifting modes of perception.
