"Why should we show your movie?"

 #biff1 "Why should we show your movie?" Too many times, it seems as though film festivals are looking for an excuse NOT to accept your film. It doesn't fit the theme. It's too "weird." There's no name connected with it.  At the Boulder International Film Festival, we have one criterion for selection -- one. Quality. We are committed to providing a showcase of the best in film for our guests, and a great experience for our filmmakers. We welcome first-timers and ...

Je suis un indien Pontiac

Director: Pierre Yves Clouin.
This film was shot during a CulturesFrance (Institut Français) Hors les murs New Images arts residency in Montreal, Canada, in the summer of 2010. The project is a chronological record, each scene engendering the next Working without written notes of what I shot, I recorded over 10 hours of video merely keeping in mind that the order in which everything was filmed had provoked what I was currently shooting. Returning to Paris for editing, I sorted my footage in repeated viewings. I had to find an atmosphere, a rhythm, a current, from scene to scene, that seemed compelling, a flow that under-lied the shooting. This binding element is like an arc that was built up slowly, as the project progressed. It is an arc that brings together two images that are strictly unrelated, and makes one follow naturally on the other — a group of men, for example, casting a sidelong glance at a passing police car on a bridge at night, followed by a human foot that seems to emerge from a tree trunk in broad daylight and kick in rhythm. With each viewing, I preserved only those scenes that seemed most closely to fit this arc and eliminated everything else, all the while preserving the exact chronology of the shooting sequence. What remans is 39 minutes of video in 73 scenes. J’ai fait ce film durant une résidence CulturesFrance (Institut Français) Hors les murs Nouvelles Images à Montréal l'été 2010. Le projet est un enregistrement chronologique, chaque scène ayant engendré la suivante. Sans avoir de note sur ce que j’avais filmé, j’ai tourné une dizaine d’heures avec à l’esprit l’idée que l’ordre dans lequel tout était filmé provoquait ce que j’étais en train de filmer. Au montage en rentrant à Paris, j’ai fait un tri par passages successifs. Il a fallu retrouver une atmosphère, un rythme ou un flux qui semble s’imposer de lui même entre les images, flux qui était sous tendu au tournage. Ce liant, c’est comme une courbe qui s’est construite au fur et à mesure. Cette courbe fait que deux images qui n’ont strictement rien à voir — d’abord un groupe d’hommes qui observe du coin de l’oeil une voiture de police qui passe sur un pont la nuit et puis un pied qui semble sortir d’un tronc d’arbre et qui bat en rythme, le jour — que ces deux images donc se succèdent évidemment. J’ai gardé à chaque visionnement les images au plus près de la courbe et éliminé tout ce qui lui était étranger, mais en conservant l’exacte chronologie du filmage : Il reste 37 minutes en 73 plans.
