JEAN-LUC NANCY by Antoinette Zwirchmayr

Festival Trailer Diagonale 17


Antoinette Zwirchmayr realized the trailer JEAN-LUC NANCY for Diagonale – Festival of Austrian Film


“The full moon on the black night sky, a swinging pendulum, constellations, three women seen from behind, an ensemble of sparking crystals, half-transparent stripes in motion, light plays in black-and-white and in color. Images, perspectives, bodies, spaces, worlds set in relation to one another. Or, in other words: cinema. Concrete and abstract, sensual and theoretical, thought out and felt JEAN LUC NANCY the complex essence of cinema: as dispositive, as medium, as work body, as aesthetic experience, and as sensual site of encounter and tenderness – fleeting, moving, illuminating, touching.”
