The presence of Time in the cinema is also the focus of the tenth book in the Punto de Vista collection, entitled TIME, a volume that includes a series of essays written and prepared to mark the tenth anniversary of this film festival in Navarre. John Berger, Víctor Erice, Nicole Brenez, Jonathan Rosenbaum and Georges Didi-Huberman have been invited to contribute to the book, along with Jean-Paul Fargier who has written a text dedicated to the graphic part of the book: the photos taken by Jean-Daniel Pollet as a graphic diary of his retirement in Cadenet.
Why don't cows think about tomorrow and why don't they need philosophy? This is one of the questions pondered by British art writer and essayist John Berger in an interesting dissertation on the relationship between time and space. Where is the beat of time today? This is the question posed by Spanish filmmaker Víctor Erice, who offers a beautiful essay that unveils the essence and secrets of his film that is most closely linked to time: El sol del membrillo. The great American critic Jonathan Rosenbaum shares his memories as a moviegoer to show how personal time in one's own life is also marked by the films one has grown up and developed with. From France, the art historian Georges Didi-Huberman offers up six fragments about Time, like six flashes that burst into questions of time such as similarities and preventions. And Nicole Brenez, professor and expert in avant-garde film, talks to us about the different contretemps posed by film in the passing of hours, minutes, and days.
