Cinéma de Résistance: aux atéliers de Paris

Cinéma de Résistance: aux ateliers de Paris

 

L’Abominable and l’Etna, the two artist-run film labs of Paris, stand at the forefront of a global movement. As and increasing number of commercial laboratories end their operations, the means of those dedicated to working in the photochemical mediums of Super-8 and 16mm (among several other formats) are thrown into question. Largely out of necessity, the filmmaker must take on the dual role of artist and technician. Yet through this imperative many creative doors are opened, as the filmmaker is given the freedom to experiment and fine-tune their craft in ways not afforded to them by the traditional practice of having a commercial lab working as an intermediary.

 

Marcel Duchamp once said that, “A tube of paint that an artist uses is not made by the artist; it is made by the manufacturer that makes paints. So the painter really is making a readymade when he paints with a manufactured object…” Observed in such a way, film is even more of a prefabricated medium, relying heavily on industrial manufacturing practices and a strict uniformity of the final product. Yet one could make a comparison of the DIY approach of these labs being almost like a return to mixing one’s own paints from raw pigments, thus allowing certain levels of nuance not be had when working solely with pre-mixed colors. Filmmakers are liberating themselves from the industry on some level by taking control of processes that were until recently outside their domain.

 

The works in this program represent just a small sampling of those created by filmmakers working at l’Etna and l’Abominable, but the hands of the filmmakers can truly be felt in each film. Several of the films are hand-processed originals, in fact – ephemeral and unique, building a history with each successive showing as they persevere against the dust, the scratches, and the ravages of time that leave so many video formats obsolete.

UNDER 8 FEET OF SNOW: FILMS FROM BOSTON AND PROVIDENCE

16mm Experimental Film Screening
UNDER 8 FEET OF SNOW: FILMS FROM BOSTON AND PROVIDENCE

As onerous amounts of snow continue to bury the city of Boston and it’s surrounding areas,
a nascent film collective is incubating beneath the frozen mantle. The goal, outlined in a meeting
this past January, is to facilitate the continued practice of 16mm and Super-8 filmmaking by uniting
the community and creating a shared workspace with access to resources that may be otherwise
unobtainable.

Thanks in part to the numerous educational institutions which regularly draw in fresh students
and established artists alike, Boston has long been a hub for experimental and avant-garde film;
Yet these same institutions often leave the community feeling fragmented and precarious, as people
leave when they are finished with the schools or when the schools finish with them. Still, as anyone
working in the physical medium of film today can attest, there is a certain level of uncertainty that is
intrinsically bound to the craft, and one must be tenacious to continue working in a medium constantly
threatened with extinction.

The eight films in this program represent a small sampling of recent works by members of Boston’s
local community. While each is quite different in approach – whether utilizing a homemade optical printer,
direct-animation and photogram techniques, chemical manipulation of the emulsion, or in-camera editing –
together they exemplify the enthusiastic resilience and high-degree of talent visible in Boston today.
