Patrick Bokanowski. The screen as a canvas

The CCCB's cinema


This session presents an experimental animation film by Patrick Bokanowski, a renowned filmmaker who, in this work, continues his investigation into filmic material and the expressionist use of colour, aspects which he works intensively and meticulously in each new piece.

Premiere of the second and latest feature film of French artist and filmmaker Patrick Bokanowski (L’Ange), who masterfully transmutes reality into beautiful optical and artistic interplays. The mechanisms of the filming and projection transfigure reality, and Bokanowski carries these mechanisms to the limit in Un rêve solaire, presenting a hypnotic struggle between light and shadow. Un rêve solaire invites us on a journey of fitful sleep, conjuring imaginary and phantasmagorical worlds to the evocative soundtrack by Michèle Bokanowski.

Un rêve solaire, 2015, 63 min. DCP screening.


Directors: Patrick Bokanowski
