Procès verbal Matthew Wolkow

Procès verbal

An eloquent camera is focused on the lively nest of a family of blue jays. Backed by a stunning sound design, this short film documents the birds’ life, from the chicks’ meals to their first flight. A unique experimental film, it is structured around the typed words of an anonymous typist who takes minutes for a mysterious meeting and notes ideas for a future film. Humour and procedural poetry combine in this work of astounding beauty. (HSB)

Filmmakers statement regarding the cancellation of the screening on november 20th :

“In solidarity with the Palestinian people's right to self-determination and their fight to live free and unoccupied, we withdraw our films from the screening scheduled for Monday 20th of November at Cinéma du Parc. This comes as a response to Cinéma du Parc's cancellation of a fundraiser screening in support of Gaza that was supposed to take place on November 6th at their cinema. In doing so, Cinema du Parc contributed to the silencing of Palestinian voices at a time where an ongoing genocide of the Palestinian people is being perpetuated by the Israeli occupation forces in Gaza. We stand against this act of censorship and stand with the Palestinian's fight to resist erasure. None of us are free until all of us are free.
We thank the festival for their support of our decision, and for taking the responsibility of an act made by one their venues.”

- Nour Ouayda, Matthew Wolkow and Deborah Stratman, filmmakers
