CHAMP DES POSSIBLES

A contemporary city symphony where floating memories blend with urban sounds and the natural elements, where tales of loss and love are mirrored by the demolition and construction of new buildings, where death and birth stand next to each other, like the darkest hour of the night and the first lights of the day, and the net of the streets holds tight all the possibilities that life might unfold.

Voyage autour de la Lune is an urban diary, a personal wandering which draws the lines of an emotional and psychological map of the city of Bordeaux along the renewed river banks, once called the "Moon Harbour" for the large curve with which the Garonne river embraces the city. Through this week long journey from one side to the other of the river banks, Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine tell us about the identity of a public space which has deeply changed in the collective mind of the city. In an intimist cinematic language, the film drives us along the huge tumultuous river in its flows and tides, and drifts into the intimate turmoils of all the people met on site during the journey. A rare example of a film in which a city is portrayed through a collection of personal stories. The film duo Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine cooperates since 2005, when they formed the creative platform Bêka & Partners. With regard to the contemporary architecture, their film production focuses particularly on searching for new narrative forms. Since 2016 their films are part of the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

This film is presented at the Section : Whose the city?  2018 Film and Architecture Festival.

Whose the City?
Public space becomes more and more relevant social topic. People are more interested in where they live. They like to decorate not only their property, but also playgrounds, parks, streets and public squares. Moreover, public space also represents a place for different interests. Does the city belong to the state, politicians, developers or to the citizens, who inhabit the public space and use it on a daily basis? Films in this section present different points of view on building and using of public places. With thanks to mmcité1 a.s.
