Un été à la Garoupe + The Zurich Chronicle

Un été à la Garoupe

This film tells the story of the friendship between a group of painters, photographers and poets passionate about art. In the summer of 1937, Man Ray and his young companion Ady Fidelin met up with a group of friends at the Vastes horizons pension, in the village of Mougins, on the heights of Antibes. There is the poet Éluard and his wife Nusch, Roland Penrose and his future wife Lee Miller, Picasso and Dora Maar. Man Ray brought with him his camera and a new color kodachrome film he wanted to experiment with. Man Ray’s films are always avant-garde film experiences. He films his friends, turns the light, blurs the image, has fun, often undresses women, such as the legendary Kiki de Montparnasse or the fascinating Lee Miller… In Mougins, Man Ray decides to shoot a small film with his family at heart. Built in sketches, funny, direct and rich in playful images, the film will take as its title La Garoupe, the Antibes beach which welcomes them every day.

The Zurich Chronicle

In 1916, the Dada movement was born in Zurich with the contribution of three Romanian born artists: Tristan Tzara, Marcel Janco and Arthur Segal. Filmed in Zurich, in some of the most important dada archives in the world, this documentary draws an ironic portrait of the city in contrast with the atmosphere of the Dada events. A substantial interview with Guido Magnaguagno, deputy director of Kunsthaus Zurich, accompanies the fresh visual flow.
