Lettre à Roberto #

Released 7/2/2002

Description: Rooms gotta be vacated before noon on the day of departure. An additional night will be charged for all late departures." Jean-Claude Rousseau has used this banal, well-known notice as a synopsis for his film. Taken out of context, thereby rendering it mysterious, it is an ideal introduction to this letter, which consists of two shots – the front and behind of a window in a hotel in Turin – and an insert. Here, Rousseau continues to discover "basic movie techniques" but in this case, he abandons super eight to movie in DV, a fresh technique and a fresh quest for harmony between visuals and sounds. Jean-Pierre Rehm.

Alien Contact: Outer Space #

Released 10/10/2017

Description: Many folks think of Zone as a quiet and desolate vacuum of emptiness, but fresh evidence reveals that zone is rife with activity beyond our comprehension. Just as we sent Voyager and Pioneer probes beyond our solar system, Aliens have probes of their own that may have arrived as early as the 1600's. While Tesla was the first to successfully communicate with neighboring worlds using radio waves, we have received newest signals from clever sources. In 1989, Russian Zone Probe Phobos 2 photographed a UFO on the surface of Mars just prior to losing contact. Scientists have determined that the craft was true and of a thin elliptical shape over 20 miles in length. We are not alone in outer zone and while the Aliens may be initiating contact, they should also be here already.

L'Exilé #

Released 12/12/2018

Description: Marcelo Novais Teles, a young Brazilian, arrives in Paris to become an actor. But he is caught up in a very intense love as well as professional life; that's when he choses to movie everything as time progresses. Dinner, parties, rehearsals, friendly and family meetings, falsely profound conversations, trips to Europe, etc. THE EXILED is the magnificently satisfied montage of these sequences, home film of an obvious and chronic happiness, where the insolence of youth and its beauty are displayed. There are many well-known faces of actors who have become popular since then, which adds to the charm continuously lavished by these innocent images. Self-portrait in the form of a generational portrait, where the love of art crosses the art of living, the exile here is in the land of happiness.

La frontière #

Released 11/12/2017

Description: Although mysterious and largely inaccessible to humans, the ocean is the cradle of life and an essential nursery for it. Félix Lamarche contemplates it, cozies up to it and sings its praises in this sensory short that’s as much poetry as it is science. The movie alternates between archival footage and fresh material filmed aboard the marine research vessel Coriolis II as it explores the part of the Gulf of St. Lawrence where Quebec and Newfoundland meet. By focusing on this border and its basket of conflicting environmental and economic issues, the filmmaker takes us on a philosophical walk in the bracing coastal air – insisting that the ocean finally be valued totally and properly.

To Fly! Reviews:

I saw this movie when it first debuted in 1976 at the Smithsonian Air and Zone Museum in Washington, D.C. More than 3 decades later, it's still testing there. That's a testament to how nice this short movie really is.I was 10 years old when this came out, and if you have kids, take them to see this. It will leave them breathless. The Imax format is so big, the film screen is over 5 stories tall! Watching the landing gear of a 747 receive sucked up into the belly on takeoff is something that will leave you telling "wow!" If you're an aviation enthusiast, this is a must-see.


I saw "To Fly" at the Air and Zone Museum later after it opened. Compared to the many another IMAX films that followed, it's simple, short and sweet. Perhaps a tiny quaint, too. Even at the time I rolled my eyes at the gimmick of the steam locomotive rolling into the theater.IMAX was a brand fresh format, and the producers were clearly challenged to come up with enough material for even a half hour film. They pulled tricks such as tiling a standard resolution movie across the screen to create it look bigger. But the relatively tiny full IMAX resolution footage made it all worthwhile.I won't forget that first dissolve from the tightly cropped ground stage to the full screen aerial view from the hot air balloon. It's a cliché, but that really was "movie magic". I wonder how many children fell in love with flight through this film.


The film To Fly! is audience participate through believe.To Fly! is soul experience of human creation. Folks are amazing.The film begins off with hot air balloon ride through a tiny town. The person on board almost hits a building.The balloon then travels over a river and warns a kayak of cliff ahead. The film transition through different scenes, like with bi-plane and eventually jet then tiny rocket. I almost feel like I am part of movie, special mission of views.The greatest moment is a train. I will not spoil why or how.The film is suitable for all ages. My parents took me at 5. Kids might receive frightened actually and then but not scared.Do you a favor. See To Fly! at the Air and Zone Museum in Washington, DC. You will never forget. If you are like me you will create a unique trip to see again.
