Interviews with Martin Arnold, Frédérique Devaux, Olivier Fouchard, Ken Jacobs, Christian Lebrat, Rose Lowder, Nicolas Rey, Silvi Simon Jose Antonio Sistiaga

How should experimental filmmakers live and work in the "digital age"? What is their commitment to the materiality of film as an object? What are their tools, their relations to their creations, their ways of thinking of building and living with sights and sounds? How do they finance their projects? How should they carry on their journey considering the decisive changes to what we now know as movies, including "experimental", as they are considered in their aesthetic, practical, technical, economic and institutional dimensions?

This book seeks to raise these issues through new interviews with filmmakers of different generations and different backgrounds, but who share a lucid and unique look at their own work, such as how the digital turn has affected - and not necessarily, as would so many ideas deem, in a negative way - for nearly fifteen years.


To support and extend the speech filmmakers, each interview is followed by a complete filmography and iconography containing reproductions of photograms, photographs of their equipment, preparatory drawings and visual scores, which shed light on a another angle the genesis of their work. The ensemble is completed by a glossary and a bibliography.
