Pierre Hébert : Places and Monuments

Depuis maintenant plusieurs années, le cinéaste d’animation Pierre Hébert travaille à une série de films de différents formats, sous le titre générique de Lieux et monuments. Travaillés parfois comme des carnets de voyages, mais aussi comme autant de films essais géopolitiques, cette série ambitieuse est unique dans le parcours au long cours de Pierre Hébert. Nous allons présenter la série complète en quatre séances successives, en débutant par la projection en primeur du plus récent volet, Le mont Fuji vu d’un train en marche.

May 6th - June 6th, 2021

As Pierre Hébert releases his last animation film, Le mont Fuji vu d'un train en marche, nineteen of his original drawings will be exhibited on the walls of the Cinémathèque for the occasion. Inspired by photographs taken in the forest of Yakushima, Japan, these charcoal sketches were used as the basis to produce a sequence of his feature film.
