Etienne O'Leary - Films 1966-1968
Published by the Institut pour la Coordination et la Propagation des Cinémas Exploratoires in Montreal. One of the figureheads of the underground and initiator of a new film language, Étienne O’Leary shot his films in the effervescence of a Paris reaching May 68. His filmography consists of three experimental films completed in Paris between 1966 and 1968, constituting a cinema of resistance. They’re brutally personal and subversive. O’Leary’s contributed a new cinematographic language to the French underground film. Same goes for the three unsettlingly evocative soundtracks that he composed himself.
Day Tripper (1966, B&W, 16mm, 9min)
Homeo (aka Homeo : Minor Death : Coming back from goin’ home) (1967, color, 16mm, 38min)
Chromo Sud (1968, color, 16mm, 21min)
