A book on the film LA RÉGION CENTRALE by Micheal Snow
Warning: Last items in stock!
LA RÉGION CENTRALE lasts a little over three hours, while its subject could not be more minimal: a landscape, rather arid, a desert in fact, always filmed from the same place, "central". [...]
[…] You can see mainly rocks, small stones but also large rocks, a few blades of grass and, in the distance, mountains and a lake. All in very subtle shades of brown, dark green and gray, offset by the blue of the sky and the glare of the sun. And that's all ? Yes that's all. […] Unity of place, unity of action and unity of time: the film begins one day and ends at dawn the next.
Stéfani de Loppinot is a filmmaker and film historian. She has directed several short films (notably Prisme in 1999 and Calamity gene in 2002), magic lantern shows, has and signed numerous articles in the magazines 'Exploding' and 'Cinema'. She does not have a limited definition of so-called experimental cinema, and sees no problem to combining her passion for films by Michael Snow with those she nurtures for the works of Jean Vigo, King Vidor or Busby Berkeley.
