SCREENING PROPOSED BY CHARLÈNE DINHUT AND BENOÎT HICKÉ Director: Fiona Tan (Netherlands, Japan - 2016 - 80'- VOSTF) French premiere
The artist Fiona Tan is confronted here with a myth, a living myth so to speak: Mount Fuji, a mountain so revered, drawn, written. For this film made only of photographs of the Mount, Fiona Tan brought together
The story told is also plural: it is built around a story of mourning love, and is constantly enriched by legends, fables, history, family memories. The film thus celebrates this mountain, questions the visible and, above all poetic, considers love and art to be inevitable climbs. “Could we fill the Grand Canyon with the representations that have been made of it? "(WJT Mitchell, Landscape and Power)
