Maps of Film Analysis


The challenge of this bilingual (French-English) digital platform is to experiment with new forms of writing film analysis, interactive and non-linear. The aim is to transmit and share the analyst’s gestures by proposing an innovative model: heuristic maps enriched with still and moving images, sound extracts and texts (theoretical, critical and literary). These maps invite you to explore paths, intuitions, hesitations, conductive threads, bifurcations, sidetracks, stops on details. Analyzing to put in relation plans, motifs, visual and/or sound fragments. The visitor progresses along continuous or dotted lines, which don't disperse, but intersect, overlap, interrupt and sometimes reappear. The analysis could be constructed in the manner of a detective novel, especially when it focuses on motifs, finding the sensation of smelling a track. This unique, singular approach is that of the detective, distinct from that of the policeman for Siegfried Kracauer. The imaginative and interpretive dimension of the detective joins the writing of the analysis. However, the ambition of detective analysis isn't to solve an enigma posed by the film, nor to find the origin of a motif or reference like the key in a police investigation, where the culprit can be designated at some point. It is therefore less an investigation than a quest through mental and/or topographical maps.
