Synopsis

The movements of the ferry, creating additional disturbances in the waves of the Mediterranean Sea, enable the creation of colorful compositions, unexpectedly degraded algorithmic interventions of digital compression which in inventive surfaces and grids mask and repeatedly renew the authenticity of the record of the voyage, while the horizon becomes an escaping uncertainty. Jacques Perconte (1974) is a leading figure on the French avant garde film scene. He experiments with digital images, codecs, and compression algorithms that he himself creates. Thematically he focuses primarily on the relationships of contemporary culture and technologically advanced civilizations with nature. His work has been screened at past Jihlava IDFFs: L (2014), Les Moutiers (2012), and Ettrick (2015), among others.

“The wind blew from the starting of the ferry. Offshore, the swell could make the travel difficult, but that boat would split the sea and project its Mediterranean blue in the golden sky and the fire light of the setting sun in the waves.”
