LA VILETTE SUR COURTS
Visual artist Xavier Veilhan was commissioned by La Villette's Festival de Cinéma en Plein Air to direct a short film linked to the 2015 theme: Home cinemas, in the framework of the "Villette sur courts" programme.
Xavier Veilhan has strong links with architecture. In response to La Villette's proposition, he created a film that plays with perspectives, scales, and the relation between set design and architecture. The sequences revolve around the figure of an architect/creator, performed by Micha Lescot. Vent Moderne shows a succession of fantasized moments of his life : time for architectural conception, meetings, trips, celebration and pleasure instants. A more abstract dimension is added to this narrative one: a succesion of visual evocations among which the viewer will make his own way.
