DVD with 7 short films by Boris Lehman

The solid core of Boris Lehman's cinematographic galaxy, its central constellation or nebula, or even its black hole that absorbs any neighbouring projects, is undoubtedly Babel. The filmmaker stages himself there as a representative who is at once singular yet common to all of humanity - it was clearly a fatality that he would one day play the role of Christ. Extraordinary events are banished, but also anything that does not belong to the character's world. Friends, places and occupations are purged of their banality by being filmed. Boris does not fictionalise them or transform them into epics; he immortalises them by appropriating their image, because cinema is a form of vampirisation. (...) "Being filmed is being loved". This is why, in retribution for the gifts from so many friends, he films them. This is why, desperately, he films himself.
