Synopsis

Working from archives of private film footage from a trip to India by the upper class of the late 1920s, a period of strong anti-colonial outbreak, Yervant Gianikian and Angela Ricci Lucchi deconstruct the images and analyze the attitude and behavior of Westerners in the East. Who are these travellers? What brings them here? Why do we find them disturbing? Along with the images, texts by Henri Michaux and Mircea Eliade are sung by Giovanna Marini.

 

Biography

Angela Ricci Lucchi
Yervant Gianikian (born to Armenian parents in 1942) studied architecture in Venice; Angela Ricci-Lucchi (born in Lugo di Romagna) studied painting in Austria with Oskar Kokoschka. Settling in Milan, they have devoted their activities to the cinema since the mid-seventies, first with their performance screenings of , then with their artisanal re-working of the old films of their collection which they tinted, toned, step-printed and reedited - as they did, for example, in with footage shot by pioneer Luca Comerio. Working like archeologists with film stock, ideologies and culture, they have developed a cinema which is not only narrative and poetry but also critique and analysis of the recycled footage.
