Mind's Eye
François Caillat Documentaries

January 11 - 26, 2013

For the first program of the year 2013, Pera Film in collaboration with l’Institut français presents a unique selection of four documentaries by filmmaker François Caillat. The program Mind's Eye explores the different themes of Caillat's oeuvre, the intricate essay-like films investigating the history, time and memory of certain incidents. For Caillat visuals and audio become two visceral key elements in weaving the rather experimental mannerism of storytelling. When not behind camera, Caillat is in charge of the collection Cinéma documentaire (publication of debates, critical essays, screenplays) by Editions L'Harmattan.

Return from Vienna

Return from Vienna

Józef Brandt harboured a fascination for the history of 17th century Poland, and his favourite themes included ballistic scenes and genre scenes before and after the battle proper –all and sundry marches, returns, supply trains, billets and encampments, patrols, and similar motifs illustrating the drudgery of warfare outside of its culminating moments.
