Vaisseaux (belgian premiere)

Vessels questions what moves us and takes us beyond, towards the informal and the invisible. The music is performed live from a device combining analog synthesizers, Revox recorder, filters, effects and computers. It oscillates between electronic and electroacoustic music. Sounds from different sources (singing or spoken voice, concrete sounds, sounds made on the South Port of France Sète) are processed, multiply distributed and mixed with analog sounds. Robin Gregory carried out the shooting on the Opal Coast (North of France). All captured images are mounted in reverse and trouble the way we look at our surroundings. Annabelle Playe works with video like it is sound composition: repetition of a pattern, developments, ruptures and continuity, variations and nuances. A dynamic montage of dialogue images with the music in a contrapuntal manner. Sometimes the image is erased to make room for music.

Production : AnA compagnie & Glossophonies, co-production La Canopée. Partenship le Port de Sète, Sud de France (34), Festival VIDÉOFORMES (Clermont-Ferrand), Studio Césaré (51) with the support of Conseil Régional Languedoc-Roussillon et du Conseil Général du Pas-de-Calais.

Gregory Robin

A musician and photographer, Robin Gregory since 2003 has been moving towards filmmaking, to which he has devoted himself entirely since 2006. His first pictures already show a very personal aesthetic. He plays with grainy and blurry images. This visual research led him to other mediums such as Super 8, with which he made his first steps as a director. While his filmography is composed mainly of documentaries, an interest in manipulating genres led him to explore their intersection, conferring on reality a style close to fiction. He returned more directly with experimental form in his film Guts, shot at the museum of the mine in Saint-Etienne. In 2012, he created with Joel Caron After the War Films, a structure which produced and directs the creation of movies. In 2014, he joined Raymond and Jean-Philippe Julien Féret to create the Center Far Films production company.
