À vendredi, Robinson Mitra Farahani

Nine years after the acclaimed Fifi Howls from Happiness, Mitra Farahani returns to the RIDM with a sort of double portrait of two artists who have never met. Maintaining a richly enigmatic and playful correspondence, filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard and Iranian filmmaker and writer Ebrahim Golestan email each other every Friday. Farahani alternates between these two outstanding figures of cinema, speaking with them directly and creating a visual and scenic portrayal of the genesis of their thinking, highlighting the very different daily lives of these two great minds. Subtle reflections tinged with humour gradually emerge, especially concerning language, in a curious mix of respect and incomprehension.
