Since I began making films, I have always been interested in the fact that the image in the cinema - the image on the screen - does not exist at all. This is an immaterial picture: you can not touch it, it's only light, projected light.
If you're a filmmaker, you have to work with this very strong characteristic of cinema: on one hand you're working with celluloid, which is a very concrete material, you can hold it in your hands, cut it, work with it frame by frame and so on, and on the other hand, when it is projected, the concrete images become projected light. So when you make a film, you must have in mind that the celluloid on which images are impressed will be transformed into light by the projector. For this reason, the work of filmmaker essentially has to do with rhythm, speed, movement and changes of light.
...Lebrat gives us 15 years of working notes into 10 texts for those who thrill to the vision of his films "Trama" and "Holon," he foreshadowed in 79 with his manifesto on "post-structural" cinema.
