Ne Change Rien & Pedro Costa in Conversation with David Jenkins

2 Oct 2012

A rare opportunity to see Pedro Costa’s hypnotic and fascinating portrait of French actress and singer Jeanne Balibar, which is also a meditation on the creative process. Ne Change Rien stands as a companion film to Costa’s equally process-oriented portrait of Jean-Marie Straub and Daniele Huillet, Where Does Your Hidden Smile Lie.

"Both a startling and lucid lesson in filming musical performance and a cinephilic marvel... The sensual, velvety, high-contrast black-and-white images capture the exertions and exultations of music-making.... Costa s film was born under the virtual gaze of three artistic godfathers with original approaches to filming musical performances Godard, Chris Marker, and Jean-Marie Straub and, in the course of this bracing, fascinating feature, he conjures them all." --Richard Brody, The New Yorker

This film will be presented on 35mm. Presented in collaboration with Second Run.

Dir. Pedro Costa, Portugal 2009, 100 mins.
