You are invited to the opening of Ritournelles by Claudie Lévesque.
For more than twenty years, the filmmaker has been offering a world without artifice, deep in the intimacy of film or video material, which she uses to tell stories that are as tender as they are powerful. With Ritournelles, she goes beyond visual linearity to create a fragmented experience that captures the complex mind of a person with obsessive-compulsive disorder. Far from a medical or psychological report, Lévesque favors the warmth of voices that transmit snippets of experience to the visitor. The visuals take up everyday gestures that are arranged and answered to the rhythm of an algorithm that determines the order, always changing, that these sequences will follow when placed side by side. An organized chaos of uncontrollable habits.
