Passage of Time
"That which we call reality is a certain rapport between those feelings and those memories that simultaneously surround us - a rapport that suppresses a simple cinematic vision, one that distances itself even further from the truth that it pretends to content itself with - a unique rapport that the author must find to bind together the two different terms for eternity in his sentence."
Bestowing the author with a unique mission Marcel Proust suggests more than the simple possibility of a complex notation of time, memory and creative amnesia together, that which haunts film and is the foundation of musical temporality.
Following this Proust-esque command, the filmmaker Raúl Ruiz, author of "Time Regained", has come up against this notion on a regular basis in his films. His interlocutor, Jean-Pierre Dupuy, questions the interlocking of time, sliding from film to literature, calling upon Henry James or the Hitchcock who made Vertigo. The evening's third guest, author Renaud Camus, has made "passages" through time a style and a chronology, a journal and a noble form, a eulogy capable of opening up and spreading out. The final word of the symposium on complexity will be given to the music of Berio and to the laughs of his Sequenza III, theater of the voice affected by the multitudes.
