Antoine Karacostas formed his trio in 2014 and explores the musical richness of his Greek roots. Accompanied by Anders Ulrich on double bass and Simon Bernier on drums, "Trails" is his first album as a leader and was very well received by the press (Les Inrockuptibles FIP, France Musique, La Croix, Couleurs Jazz) . Recorded after returning from a tour in Japan, their album "Insulary Tales" was released in February 2019.
Short Film Programme
By Nathaniel Draper
France, 8 minutes
The essential rhythms of film give rise to bodies and visions hidden between perception and projection, a shadow-space for collective dreaming, cinema-ritual in the image of the gamelan. A choreography for film.
Since 2013, Nathaniel has been making fiction, documentary and experimental films, with a focus on celluloid film production. He co-directed and programmed the Syros Int’l Film Festival, and collaborates with Re: Voir Video and The Film Gallery in Paris.
In Vain (2022)
By Anastasia Melia Eleftheriou
France / Greece / Spain / USA, 13 minutes
A mysterious figure rises from dried earth and descends upon a drought-stricken town, driven by thirst, like Tantalus. Nature, or some God, has meted out punishment, and there's no hope for sharing water.
Trained in film directing and editing in France and the US, Anastasia has worked as a film programmer for the Forum des Images, collaborates with the Thessaloniki International Film Festival, and is a head programmer at the Champs Élysées Film Festival.
By Laurène Braibant
France, 10 minutes
What happens when all of a sudden, drunk by the taste of the
colourful and savoury dishes, an Ogre ends up revealing
his true self? He becomes a monster. The misfortunes of an Ogre looking for food.
Laurène graduated from ESAAT and La Poudrière in France. They are a director and animator, mostly working on short films and tv series. L'Ogre has won several awards in festivals including Hiroshima, Annecy, and Annim’est.
The Eiffel Tower is moving! (1930)
by Pippo Barzizza
Home Movies 100
France, 7 minutes
A familiar Paris, full of life, and - if not exactly 'au bon marché' - within reach of the camera. Pippo, who has been using a 9.5 mm camera since 1928, seems to be influenced by the cinematic avant-garde when he turns the Eiffel Tower around and shoots the traffic backwards with a simple gesture of the camera. Artistic citation or pure amateur filmmaker's experimental instinct?
