L'écrivain aveugle / The Blind Writer
Georges SifianosFrance, Greece / 2021 / 9' 50''
Cinema SC, 15:30 h
The drawings of this film were made blindfolded, that is, without looking at them while drawing but using only tactile cues. This challenge reflects the writer’s dilemmas facing ideological certainties. In a world of communication, where custom images and opinions are constructed, how can one discern the essential? What is seeing anyway? Appearances, do they correspond to reality?
Georges Sifianos is professor emeritus of animation at ENSAD in Paris. He has made animation films and pursued his career as a researcher with interest in animation aesthetics, cognitive sciences, and artificial intelligence.
