NIGHTSWIMMING : DISCOTHEQUE IN ITALY FROM THE 1960s UNTIL NOW

The project examines the history of Italian dance clubs, as asocial and anthropological phenomenon. Italy’s social, cultural and economic evolution over the last 50 years has gradually transformed the idea of fun, and with it also the spaces in which fun takes shape. Today a paradox is evident: the clubs are no longer necessarily a physical place, but are now formed of events and theme nights. The history of Italian clubs is told through interviews with architects, DJs, writers, and intellectuals, as well as period photos and a new photographic survey of what remains of today’s discotheques.

Sphères

Court métrage d'animation de Norman McLaren et de René Jodoin. Dans une sorte de jeu de mouvement, ils font virevolter des sphères blanches dans un ciel coloré en mouvance. Ces sphères s'alignent, se groupent et se multiplient, entrant parfois en collision l'une contre l'autre. Au piano, Glenn Gould exécute des extraits du « Clavecin bien tempéré » de Bach et donne au film son rythme et l'allure qui le caractérise.

Runner

This captivating short documentary profiles the young Canadian long-distance runner Bruce Kidd at 19 years old. Kidd eventually went on to win a gold and bronze medal at the 1962 Commonwealth Games, and was a competing member of the 1964 Canadian Olympic team. Directed by Don Owen (Nobody Waved Good-bye, Toronto Jazz), the film is luminously photographed by John Spotton and features poetic commentary composed and spoken by the great Anglo-American poet W.H. Auden. The camera follows Kidd’s sprightly movements as he runs on piers, practice tracks, and finally, in an international race. Oblivious to the clapping crowds and the flash of cameras, he knows full well that in the long run it is the cold stopwatch that tells the truth.

 

All visible visibly
Moving things
Spin or swing,
One of the two,
Move, as the limbs
Of a runner do,
To and fro,
Forward and back,
Or, as they swiftly 
Carry him
In orbit go
Round an endless track:
So, everywhere, every
Creature disporting
Itself according
To the law of its making
In the rivals' dance
Of a balanced pair
Or the ring-dance
Round a common centre,
Delights the eye
By its symmetry
As it changes place
Blessing the unchangeable
Absolute rest
Of the space all share

 

The camera's eye
Does not lie
But it cannot show
The life within,
The life of a runner,
Of yours or mine,
That race which is neither
Fast nor slow,
For nothing can ever
Happen twice,
That story which moves
Like music when
Begotten notes
New notes beget
Making the flowing 
Of time a growing
Till what it could be
At last it is,
Where Fate is Freedom,
Grace, and Surprise.

' Every time I go back to Sardinia to visit my family, I see this abandoned building in front of the sea. I felt it was the perfect place for Léo Walk and his choreographic imagination to perform, surrounded by the ruins, the surreal light of the costa verde and the intense voice of Mercedes Sosa. It creates this subtle feeling between vitality and melancholy that I wanted to express in this film. Sit back and enjoy! '

Baz does Advertising

From i-D Magazine:

Erdem x H&M have just released the Baz Luhrman-directed short film The Secret Life of Flowers for their collaboration campaign, and as you'd expect from three blockbuster names, it's a grandiose flowerbomb of epic proportions.

There's glamourous boys and girls, an enigmatic matriarch figure, a mansion, unrequited love and a spring that never ends. It's essentially a modern day Great Gatsby, which isn't really surprising given that Baz directed that film too.
