THE HOOD

Patricia Vidal Delgado

Under the pretext of preparing for a role, an actor walks the streets of the neighbourhood of Compton, in Los Angeles, looking for information and inspiration. The actor ends up getting involved in a series of events, which the film stages as if it were a documentary, in a device that sometimes reveals that the camera observes small details that the protagonist does not see, thus making our point of view the true point of view, in an intelligent and subversive exploration of the rules of a genre.

Year of the robot

Yves Gellie

At the intersection of art and science, L’année du robot (Year of the robot) depicts the human being and the robot as its artificial counterpart. As a series of archival documents detailing the first contacts and dialogue between a robot gifted with an artificially created autonomy and human beings, it studies cognitive dissonance, a minute, mysterious relational space sitting between the two actors.

It involves elderly people sometimes afflicted with Alzheimer's or dementia, or young adults with autism or neurological problems.

Once past the surprise phase and aware of the artificial nature of the robot's functioning, the residents try, despite everything, to forge bonds with it.
