Notes sur Pierre Vallières


Citations de la réalisatrice [en anglais]

« I liked the idea of concentrating on one small section of his anatomy, because it simplifies things. Here is a close-up hold of his mouth, on and through which you can meditate on the qualities of voice, the French language, revolution, the French Revolution, Géricault's colour, etc. These are some of the things I think about when I see my film. »
-- Joyce Wieland (source)

« [Pierre Vallières] was a one-shot affair ... and shows the whole process of making the film, camera breakdown, Vallières pulling away after shots, and the final emptying of the camera ... I had over fifty feet in the magazine so I turned the camera around on the tripod and had it look out the window at the snow while it emptied itself. »
-- Joyce Wieland (source)
