Various Artists - Avant-Garde Belge 1927-1937

At the end of the nineteen twenties, two future film-makers discover their medium. Charles Dekeukeleire and Henri Storck will become famous documentary film-makers, but their debuts consist of experiments and the search of a ‘pure cinema’. With the occasional surrealists Henri d’Ursel and Ernst Moerman, they make up the first avant-garde generation in Belgian cinema. / Seven composers wrote the music for these unique films: Joachim Brackx, Eric Sleichim, Jan Van Outryve, Annelies Van Parys (in residence at Transparant) and Mireille Capelle, Geert Callaert and Thomas Smetryns (in residence at HERMESensemble). The works for ensemble are performed by the HERMES ensemble conducted by Koen Kessels. In the essay that accompanies the two DVDs, Xavier Canonne reconstructs the thrilling years 1927-1937. / Disc One: Images D’Ostende (1929, 11 mins) / Pour Vous Beaux Yeux (1929, 7 mins) / Histoire Du Soldat Inconnu (1932, 11 mins) / Sur Les Bords De La Camera (1932, 11 mins) / Visions De Lourdes (1932, 18 mins) / Combat De Boxe (1927, 8 mins) / Disc Two: Impatience (1928, 36 mins) / Histoire De Detective (1929, 51 mins) / Perle, La (1929, 33 mins) / Monsieur Fantomas (1937, 17 mins)
