Calligraphy

A film by Benoît Labourdette (1’38s, 2019).

Many lovers? How to manage the schedule?

A word that expresses the encounter, the most powerful emotion, how to write it itself?

A film by Benoît Labourdette, based on an idea by Nassera Tamer (2’25s, 2020).

Love we live it, it guides us or overwhelms us, we enjoy it or suffer from it... but by the way, what is it, exactly?

This particular tension, open or not, or even this fear sometimes linked to desire, which the characters themselves seem to express through their respective postures.

Listen to the people around you and write down some of their words.

Everything is organized around the void, or rather in the void. Writing is an adventure, a mysterious journey.

These letters must touch each other, without mixing their bodies.

Where the intersection between the letters is no exception, the word that at first seemed to flee takes its reason.

The letters of these words are necessarily linked, by the line.

Write the word “color” with multi-colored letters.

An inaccessible child’s dream, in a lost house in the woods.

Calligraphic explorations, unique words inspiring their form of drawing.

Here the letters do not touch, which does not take anything away from the depth of their dialogue; it is courteous love.

There’s a difference in essence between fatigue and sleep.

Everything turns away and turns on social networks.

Words are discovered, stripped, met in the adventure of their freehand writing.

The six letters that make up the word “couple” have a hard time fitting together, and even end up forming other words.

The letters of these words must be in each other, for they have been asked. They seek their freedom there.

The couple seems to be an evidence in the construction of love and family. Let’s lift the veil on its true history.

It is forbidden for the lines to touch each other. And yet they dialogue, all the more so.

A film by Sylviane Bertrand, Benoît Labourdette and Nordine Salhi (1’, silent, 2018).

Calligraphy of bodies, crossing a history of cinema, between black and white.

How a single word, the most important of words, reveals different facets only through the way it is written.
