À propos de Nice

Creation 2005

A film by Jean Vigo. (1930, FR, 30 min)
Original music by François Paris.
Commissioned by Musique Nouvelle en Liberté - Paris City Hall, Nouvel Ensemble Moderne of Montreal
 and Ensemble Sillages

What is striking about Vigo is the expression of a reality rid of the weight and straight jacket of realistic impression or representation. This aptitude for transcending its object is visible at once and everywhere in À propos de Nice.
