Uccello ! The battle of San Romano (52 mn)

This film is a journey through time with Professor James Blœdé, of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris, to the heart of Paolo Uccello’s most cinematographic tryptic of the Italian Renaissance, a 15th Centuary masterpiece.
More than a lesson in art history, more than a lecture about an artist’s painted work, this documentary, a pictorial analysis, is an invitation to cultivate the eye.
The beauty of the whole painting will reveal itself, allowing the discovery of the painter’s innovative talent which has paved the way for others: the work on decomposition of movement, which assimilates the artist to the first cinematographers, techniques used to facilitate the interpretation of paintings, the passionate study of perspective and geometric shapes, the dazzling rendering of the material, not to mention curvilinear perspective or anamorphosis, which were invented by Uccello and theorized later by the young da Vinci.
So many elements would elude us were we to content ourselves to just a stroll through the museum...

A Grin Without a Cat - 2

It focuses on global political turmoil in the 1960s and '70s, particularly the rise of the New Left in France and the development of socialist movements in Latin America. Using the image of Lewis Carroll's Cheshire Cat, the film's title evokes a dissonance between the promise of a global socialist revolution (the grin) with its actual nonexistence.
