THE SPECULATIVE CINEMA2001-2007
Directed and produced between 2001 and 2007, the videos of the “speculative cinema“ series all explore the relations between cinema and fiction. In those films, the space of the titles is used as a writing space, to modify the identity of the film object. The name of the director is changed, the conversations between the actors and the production are revealed. Even the titles of the films are seized by instability and change as the film happens. CHTO thus works on the extension of fiction to the very elements that usually refer to the reality outside the film: the name of the actors, the name of the director.
