La Transversale

Time Travelling

La Transversale, the traditional thematic retrospective session, will explore ways in which cinema has put its own matter at stake, narratively and philosophically.

Is it to cinema that we owe the invention of time-travelling? Moments that we believed to be lost are found again with a new duration, thanks to the act of recording. Phenomena that were considered determined by a delimited length and fate are all of sudden accelerated or slowed down, subdivided, reversed or repeated, through the magical qualities of projection speed and editing.”
(Cyril Beghin, excerpt from the 2014 EntreVues catalogue)
