Light / Sound (7 mins, 2010), the first video I made with Max Le Cain, acclaimed by critic Fergus Daly as one of the top ten films of 2010 in the Senses of Cinema magazine end of year poll, was chosen for distribution by Paris-based experimental film cooperative Collectif Jeune Cinéma.
Founded in 1970, CJC is one of the leading experimental film co-operatives in France, and the oldest. Its catalogue of films by more than 260 filmmakers includes works by such artists as Pierre Clementi, Jonas Mekas, Maurice Lemaitre, Stan Brakhage, Jean-Claude Biette, Takahiko Iimura, Patrick Bokanowski, Pip Chodorov, Karpo Godina and Gérard Courant.
From our CJC catalogue page:
Light / Sound est la chronique d’une rencontre fantomatique avec la performeuse Vicky Langan qui part à la recherche de sons avec son enregistreur et un ancien projecteur 35mm.
Light / Sound chronicles a ghostly, sonic encounter between performer / sound artist Vicky Langan, out hunting for sound with her recording apparatus, and an ancient 35mm projector.
