THÉORÈME


This mathematical term serves as the title of a book and a film published and released simultaneously in 1968. Its particularly explicit theoretical tone refers to a specific aridity. As proven by the biblical quotation underlined in the text: “So god led the people around by the desert road” (Exodus, XIII, 18). And if in effect the desert appears at the end of these two stories (in fact scrupulously identical) from the very beginning it would have marked it with an atmosphere so deliberately abstract even in its deeply sensual moments. Here and there, the climate is the same: austere, it is that of a demonstration. Other works by Pasolini are assembled around this emblematic film, as well as a few of the ’classics’ (Manoel de Oliveira, James Benning, Nobuhiro Suwa, Tsaï Ming-liang) and also 8 recent films by Nurith Aviv, Lav Diaz, Avi Mograbi, Nicolás Pereda, amongst others. Not one of these resembles its neighbour, nor is it a question of a futile attempt to identify similarities or echoes. Yet it seemed to us that each one of them, in its own way, allowed itself to consider a particular demonstrative approach without relinquishing for as much that its own obvious, methodical rigour accept, with high ambitions, important areas of life.
