Gabes Cinema Fen 


Masterclass


Mai 2024
Gabès (Tunisia)

 

"When I was approached to do this masterclass, I found myself asking a question: How can I convey my way of working without relying too much on language and explanation? I realized that the best way to say as little as possible would be to show as much as possible. This approach seems even more relevant in my videos where the experiences are recorded in the process of seeking and creating, almost like archives of trial and error. By showing a part of these archives, I can share my research methods and work-in-progress. As I write this, I am immersed in the rushes of the videos I made over the past ten years. Watching and listening to these forgotten recordings fills me with both astonishment and humility as I prepare to share them with strangers. The challenge I face is how much to show and how to do it without giving away too much. Ultimately, this will be the focal point of the masterclass." Ismaïl Bahri
