Highlight 1 : Mercure insolent par F.J. Ossang, Paris, Armand Colin, 2013.
If poetry consumes the language through a vital fire, each sentence by F.J. Ossang ablazes
a torch that stirs each interval. Manifest, journal, rabid meditation, Mercure insolent
is overflowing with incredible energy. The more beautiful text on the images since
Le cinéma du diable by Jean Epstein.
Highlight 2 : THE TRIPOLI INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
Created by the extra-lucid filmmaker Jocelyne Saab in a country always a the edge of explosion, providing a great example of courage and counter-attack against all forms of communautarisms.
We have to help the National Film Archives of Greece and Portugal, that are agonizing under the attacks of the neoliberal regime, leading to new economical forms of dictatorship in Europa.
