DIA LOG : collaborative films

The films gathered here were made in a collaborative way in 2019 as part of the participatory artistic action DIA LOG, which accompanies the changes in the Les Navigateurs district of Choisy-le-Roi. Immersed in the eyes of the children of the neighbourhood and discovery of a unique working method.

Some films have only one author, others are collective creations. They exist because we have set up spaces for sincere creative encounters, which create what I call a “territory of shared imagination”. In my opinion, it is a rich way of opening up to the possible a singular, surprising, innovative, lively and free cinematographic creation.
