22.04.2022 – 15.00 – Flagey


We offer a ‘carte blanche’ to the Latin American Film Festival of Biarritz. A unique chance to get a sense of Latin American shorts they selected last year and a good way to celebrate two cities which have teamed up since 1959: Ixelles and Biarritz.

La Luz de Masao Nakagawa

Hideki Nakazaki

Pays Mexico, Pérou
Genre Documentary
2021 - 8' - Couleur
(french) Sans pathos ni grands discours contre le numérique, le film témoigne, avec respect et dignité, de la fermeture du studio photographique Nakagawa – 91 ans après sa fondation dans le nord du Pérou -, en ayant l’élégance éthique d’enregistrer en argentique la fin d’une pratique qui était beaucoup plus qu’une simple technologie : un savoir-faire et un savoir-vivre. Ici, le cinéma semble prolonger ces gestes révolus de la photographie et même s’y substituer le temps d’un ultime cliché.
