Paradoxes of place in contemporary cinema
Open call submissions

“This is the place”, says Simon Srebnik, a returning survivor from Chelmno's extermination camp, in SHOAH. According to Didi-Huberman, this is an impossible place to reconstitute through cinema. Drawing upon cinematographic gestures in existing places – from Straub-Huillet's landscapes of buried history, to the past-present interferences in the clandestine and public housing of Pedro Costa, the torturers’ rememorative actions set in the empty cells of Rithy Panh’s S21, or the figuration of disappearance in Akerman’s Los Angeles freeways – one can find, opposed to a cinema of made-up possible spaces, a cinema of paradoxical places, where superimposed incongruous spaces and times, like in Foucault’s heterotopies, offer resistance to the space we live in. This panel welcomes further explorations on the paradoxes of place.
