La Fête du Court Métrage selection:



Violetta by Julie Deliquet (2020 - France - 18min)
cycle La 3ème Scène de l’Opéra de Paris

WATCH HERE

At the crossroads of the labyrinthine corridors of the Opéra Bastille and the Gustave-Roussy hospital in Villejuif, two trajectories of actresses on the verge of performing sickness. Playing on the resemblances between the two space-time, and the confusion as to what is the fiction or the reality, violence and passion of the feelings of the two women mingle so that they testify of different relationships to tragic and to the representation.




Degas et moi by Arnaud Des Pallières (2019 - France - 20min)
cycle La 3ème Scène de l’Opéra de Paris

WATCH HERE

Surrounding himself with Michael Lonsdale and Bastien Vivès, Arnaud des Pallières is dedicating a short film to Edgar Degas which mixes dance and drawing and lifts the veil on the shadow side of the artist.




Les Divas du Taguerabt by Karim Moussaoui (2020 - France - 15min)
cycle La 3ème Scène de l’Opéra de Paris

WATCH HERE

Karim Moussaoui wonders what comes closest to an opera in his country, Algeria. Accompanied by a film crew, he travels into the desert in search of women who supposedly sing the "Taguerabt" (song of the Gourara) in caves. During their journey, a doubt settles: does this place really exist?




L’Entretien by Ugo Bienvenu & Félix De Givry (2019 - France - 8min)
cycle La 3ème Scène de l’Opéra de Paris

WATCH HERE

There are no humans left on Earth, only the maintenance robots they programmed. Mikki, the Opéra Garnier robot, is no exception to the rule and goes about his daily household chores. Every evening, at nightfall, he projects the mysterious images of a dancer onto the stage, as his last memory of humanity.




Vers le silence by Jean-Stéphane Bron (2018 - France - 9min)
cycle La 3ème Scène de l’Opéra de Paris

WATCH HERE

After the release in cinemas of the documentary film “The Opera” in April 2017, the producer Jean-Stéphane Bron followed the Music Director of the Paris Opera, Philippe Jordan, and the Orchestre de l’Opéra de Paris during the rehearsals of Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 9, whose interpretation is paradoxically based on… silence.
