March 10, 2010, invited by Serge Tisseron, I made a speech at iconic College INA, on the theme “The mobile phone is it the future of cinema?”.
Text about the intervention
The phone is in almost any pocket at all times. Who forgets his cell phone? Our prosthesis communication leaves us now again. A camera is inserted inside there 5 years. In a short time, all phones have a camera. A camera that is not one. Filmmakers have seized to tell stories, as Méliès had seized Light camera in 1895 to tell stories. For spontaneous movies, “authentic”, which return to the ontology of the image first, and perhaps to a certain essence of representation filmed, so its future.
