LES OIES DE JEAN PAUL RIOPELLE (2023) directed by Jean-Luc Dupuis

Inspired by nature, Québec painter Jean-Paul Riopelle developed a fascination for geese, which he often portrayed in his paintings. In this film, the director meets some members of Riopelle’s close circle, including the artist Marc Séguin, his daughter, Yseult Riopelle, and his last partner, Huguette Vachon, in order to better understand Riopelle’s interest in geese and their influence on his work.

HARVESTING THE LIGHT (2021) directed by Soyoung KIM

Through the eyes of two North Korean girls who were migrant labourers in Kamchatka in 1955, this short film "harvests light" from archival images to shed light on the graves of Korean people and colonial-era miners, inspired by the concept of "harvesting light" and photosynthesis in quantum biology. The film offers a unique perspective on history and is influenced by the final resting place of Han Jin, a North Korean writer, and images of Korean people and their graves in Ushutobe and Sakhalin.

두 북한 소녀들( 1955년 캄차카 이주 노동)의 시선으로 고려 사람들, 식민지 시기 광부들의 먼 곳의 묘소, 부재한 묘소를 바라본다. 식물들이 태양빛을 받아 광합성(Photosynthesis) 을 이루어내듯, 망자들의 사진을 화광 (harvesting light)한다. 아카이브 이미지들에 빛을 비추어 역사의 페이지에 올린다. 양자생물학의 빛의 수확(harvesting light)에 영감을 받은 작업.
