Experimental Stories for a New Year

January 12 - January 30, 2013

The program Experimental Stories for a New Year, presented in parallel to Mind's Eye: Documentaries of François Caillat is composed of five documentaries presenting a selection by the filmmaker François Caillat. Organized by Pera Film in collaboration with l'Institut français the director's specific selection captures documentaries that deal with subjects and themes that are not out in the open, well known or even acknowledged. The selection underlines the beauty of documentary filmmaking how the genre is capable of capturing the invisible and how the alternative, the experimental with motif, style and method create powerful imagery of stunning stories.
