Pravo Ljudski brings: French director Jean-Gabriel Périot
The month of May in Film Center Sarajevo begins with a French accent. As part of post-festival outreach activities, Pravo Ljudski prepared a surprise for 4th of May. Starting at 20:00 with a screening of two films by director Jean-Gabriel Périot, the highlight of the evening is his guest appearance.
Jean-Gabriel Périot, considered by many as one of the most prominent and interesting filmmakers working with archives nowadays Jean-Gabriel Périot is a filmmaker whose films confront us with the possibility of different readings of the historical archives, and can be placed at the crossroads of documentary, animation and experimental. Strongly politically and socially engaged and intense, almost all of his work calls into question unjustly established social hierarchies, global and local economic dependences, institutionalized violence, people-to-people violence, abuse of power, and war. His films have been screened and awarded around the world, both within cultural and artistic platforms and in public spaces, sparking debates and a sense of urgency in action, questioning generally accepted actions in historical and contemporary narratives.
The audience will have opportunity to watch EVEN IF SHE HAD BEEN A CRIMINAL… (EUT-ELLE ETE CRIMINELLE…) and NIJUMAN NO BOREI (200000 PHANTOMS / 200000 FANTÔMES).
