MISSING PICTURES EP.1-5
Clément Deneux / France, United Kingdom, Taiwan, Luxembourg, Republic of Korea / 2022 / French or English
For every movie made, dozens of pictures remain missing forever. Missing Pictures gives directors a chance to tell the story that would otherwise never be told.
Episode I ABEL FERRARA
In a world corrupted by multinationals, cops in limousines gun down the last remaining undesirables with impunity. An uprising ensues. A revolutionary figure comes face to face with a torturer to rival Colonel Kurtz.
Episode II TSAI MING LIANG
Tsai Ming-liang tenderly recounts memories of his grandparents taking him to the cinema every day, and of his loving relationship with both them and the era. Feelings that would be impossible to translate to film nowadays, given how much the world has changed.
Episode III CATHERINE HARDWICKE
In an adaptation of the classic of American literature, four marginalized activists set out to sabotage pollution-causing infrastructure. But when their actions inadvertently escalate into terrorist acts, they find themselves locked in a legal stand-off.
Episode IV LEE MYUNG-SE
Creating is removing, just as loving is knowing how to allow space for the other person. It’s a lesson that the young Myung-se learned from his father, who was fully devoted to his work. An intimate exploration of Korean culture and society.
Episode V NAOMI KAWASE
Aya, an overweight young woman who is desperately mocked, becomes infatuated with the voice of a customer at the call center where she works. Oh Debu is a delicate comedy about difference that Naomi Kawase never had the chance to direct.
Abel Kohen / France, Germany / 2021 / 25 min / French or English
Guided by the voice of her mentor Eva, Rachel dives alone to the bottom of the ocean for a scientific expedition. While strange phosphorescent parasites attack the fauna and flora, she is in turn infected and gradually discovers the real reason for this exploration. A cinematographic work with a science-fiction feel, Biolum immerses us into the beauty of the deep waters, which fill us with wonder with all the mystery they contain.
