Cezanne's Eye 2

by Maziere, Michael

Film: 16mm 1991


"First there is a lightning of language whereby the meaning is conveyed through the verbal texture that seems weightless, until the meaning itself takes on the same rarified constancy." - Italo Calvino 'Cezanne's Eye II' is an experiential journey through the body of a unique landscape -- that of Cezanne's Provence. Using the intuitive and expressionist visual language and a striking specially composed soundtrack the film is a movement through land, sky, colour, sound and music that is both sensual and visually challenging. For three years I breathed that landscape, I became a part of it's body the rocks, sky, earth and water -- we all felt it's power, as had Cezanne. M.M.
