If we, today, have perfect images of this event rather than blurred newspaper clips, we owe this to the eye of one woman. Denise Bellon has grasped this unique moment in time when post-war was becoming pre-war; each of her photographs shows a past, yet deciphers a future.

Remembrance of Things to Come (2003) Yannick Bellon & Chris Marker


Leaping back and forth in time, from family portraits of photojournalist Denise Bellon (1902-1999) and her two daughters, to her unique photographic record of pre-war Paris - the first surrealist exhibition, the 1937 Paris World’s Fair, the birth of the Cinémathèque Française, and the Popular Front - to images from France’s African colonies, the Spanish Civil War, the Second World War and the German Occupation, the images in this remarkable “cine-essay” are complemented by Chris Marker’s singular commentary, a complex rumination on the interrelations between photography, memory, thought and history. - from back cover

feminin-et-masculin:

Choirs, choirs, Robin Williams, the contemporary folk art ensemble of youtube, George Mason University’s English Accent Archive, Shamuel Beckett and others come together for a We Are The World / We Arendt -style movie/concert/concert movie. Highly recommended for those already there, those on their way. Topics include: where you’re from and how you sound, the imaginative space of the bootleg, the morass of language, the virtuosity of a radio on scan and typing in stereo.

In performance, I conduct during the first section: standing between the projector and screen creating a shadow puppet conducting to an absent (or elsewhere) choir. During the final section, a choir emerges from the audience (each standing as their color hits the screen), encouraged to perform their own accent and channel the raw ego of the original We Are the World sessions. The ____ Choir changes names based on its venue.
