THE FIRST COLLECTION

“The fi rst collection” was the name of the very fi rst

publication of Capricci. The collection is also called “fi rst”

because every publication from the collection is diff erent.

Every book could be considered as a series of its own:

interviews, shooting diaries, monographs, unpublished

scripts, biographies, autobiographies, memoirs... From

philosophical essays to fi rst-person writing, from

unpublished texts to classics, and to translations from

English, German, and Japanese, “The fi rst collection”

explores all possibilities in writings on fi lm.

JEAN-CLAUDE BIETTE,

THE SENSE OF PARADOXE

Pierre Léon Filmmaker and critic, Jean-Claude Biette has directed seven fi lms. In this both scholarly and playful book, Pierre Léon traces a meandering body of work from one fi lm to another (and not necessarily in chronologi-cal order). The ironic realism of this fi lmmaker ended prematurely with his death 2003. The work of a pe-destrian, runaway artist, a Democratic poet describing a mysterious world of secrets big and small. In this world, guarded by an army of conspirators, labrynthes and mazes, everything is possible – dreams as well as disasters.

OH BROTHERS !

ON COEN BROTHERS’ TRAIL

Marc Cerisuelo and Claire DebruFrom Blood Simple (1984) to Inside Llewyn Davis (2013), Joel and Ethan Coen manage to make the most demanding critics agree with a broad public. Film noir, romantic comedy, thriller, western, remake: they permit themselves all genres. With a fi ne knowledge of folk and rock, avid readers of Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler or Cormac McCarthy, soaked in Yiddish stories and philosophy, their cinema juggles between pop and scholarly references. Marc Cerisuelo and Claire Debru follow the two brothers throughout the joyful exploration of each of their sixteen movies.

TO FILM, SHE SAYS

MARGUERITE DURAS’ CINEMA

Collectif(With an interview of Marguerite Duras by Jean Nar-boni and Jacques Rivette and texts of Philippe Azoury, Stéphane Bouquet, Luc Chessel, Jean Cléder, Pierre Eugène, Fernando Ganzo, Xavière Gauthier, Solange Mascolo and Luc Moullet). One century ago Marguerite Duras the writer was born. The writer ? Shouldn’t we say «the artist», to include her work as a fi lmmaker? Let’s just say she is a voice, which marked, through its singularity, above the form of her works. The centenary of her birth was for Capricci an opportunity to take stock of a cinema unknown but valued.

THE APOCALYPSE-CINÉMA2012 AND OTHER ENDS OF WORLD

Peter SzendyApocalypse-cinema does not simply describe an end-of-the-world scenario supported by well-known special effects baloney. The philosopher Peter Szendy brings forward the hypothesis that this is exactly where the cinema has its role and has to face its proper limits. With one and the same terrible blow, apocalypse-cinema declares the end of time and the end of fi lm.

CLINT FUCKING EASTWOOD

Stéphane BouquetClint Eastwood is regarded as a great fi lmmaker in France. Stéphane Bouquet takes us through the last twenty years of his work from Unforgiven (1992) to J. Edgar (2012). Bouquet tries to understand his reputation, as the quality of his fi lms alone is not suffi cient explanation. With both bitterness and admi-ration, he offers a portrait of an American artist who has produced a series of relentless self-portraits and eventually became, for many French audiences, the American dream in itself…or what is left of it.Size: 12 x 17 cm,

DANSE AND CINEMA

Collective workDanse and cinema are deeply connected to each other because both are forms of art that deal with movement. How does a dancer cross the stage? How does an actor move across the screen? There are so many ways to describe how these artists live in this world: quickly or slowly, with joy or with sorrow. And yet their encoun-ter cannot be taken for granted. How should a dancer move his body when the camera is said to control the movement? Or should the camera adapt to the move-ment of the dancer? Which one of these two art forms should predominate? This study delves into the ways in which they collide, trying to fi nd answers to their nature and to the problems this collision may raise.

To answer this, we must study all of his fi lms, and more broadly the evolution of a journey begun in 1943 and completed in 1976. It’s time to pull Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s darling out from its purely æsthetic reputation to examine each of its individual fragments as graceful as they are gran-diose.
