“A brush makes watercolors seem on a white sheet of paper. An on a regular basis object takes form, drawn with precision by an artist’s hand. Then two, then three, then 4… Superimposed, condensed, multiplied, hundreds of documentary drawings in successive sequence come to life on the display, composing a veritable visible symphony of on a regular basis objects. The buildup, each fascinating and dizzying, takes us on a visit by way of time.” That’s how the Vimeo channel of Girelle Productions prefaces the animation “Grands Canons” (aka “Large Weapons”) by French filmmaker Alain Biet. It’s a wild experience, a painstaking feat in experimental filmmaking. Get pleasure from it above.
