Beyond current affairs, film memory, the look across, reflection. Since its first edition, Punto de Vista has known that it is one of the main tasks of a film festival to work very closely with the people, inviting them to think about film and helping them deepen their knowledge. This is why the Festival has always created spaces to focus on names, trends, countries, or movements that are worth having a closer look at.
All films are made of time, but some take more time than others. This programme pays tribute to the latter, focusing on films that question, praise, defy or dance with the passing of hours, days, years.
Jean-Daniel Pollet’s films are an invitation to travel within a balance of opposites in permanent tension: immobility and trance, faces and landscape, image and word, travel and confinement. How does Pollet’s filmography think? Perhaps with the key of the constant work of rewriting, editing based on a few obsessively repeated pieces, like Cézanne repeated his Saint-Victoire mountain: always the same, always different.
