Pollet, star of ten years of Punto de Vista
Punto de Vista has programmed a great retrospective devoted to the French filmmaker, Jean-Daniel Pollet (1936-2004), one of the best-kept secrets in France. The programme, which has been commissioned by the festival’s programmer, Guillermo G. Peydró, offers the images and ideas of his fascinating work of constant critical rewriting and re-reading throughout successive sessions.

Punto de Vista has programmed a great retrospective devoted to the French filmmaker, Jean-Daniel Pollet (1936-2004), one of the best-kept secrets in France. The programme, which has been commissioned by the festival’s programmer, Guillermo G. Peydró, offers the images and ideas of his fascinating work of constant critical rewriting and re-reading throughout successive sessions. The cycle is within a dialectic of travel and confinement, trance and immobility, and has a point of inflection in the 1989 train accident as the filmmaker, who had travelled 35,000 km to film the memory of the Mediterranean, was confined to his house in Cadenet; and then, without leaving this retreat, he began to visualize a new phase of possibilities for his films.  

PROGRAMMES OF THE CYCLE

I. Evasion | The accumulation of memory

Méditerranée is a 35,000 km poem that tries to sketch a definition through images of the Mediterranean, its rites and spaces, its memory. There is a temple in the centre of all the images: Bassae.

II. Confinement | Disease and the Island
