Jointly initiated by the GSARA Cinema Workshop and the CVB Production Workshop, Conversation is a one-year residence based on correspondence between two artists. It is a support structure for the authors, focussed on the stakes of documentary cinema, how it is written and its variations. Starting with the question: “What does it mean to make films?” this residence is an occasion for a series of questionings about the daily practices of two authors whose approaches merit exploration. The two participants are invited to listen to each other and to talk to each other about their different worlds, to exchange images, sounds, texts or any other means of conveying their particular relationship with reality. The GSARA and the CVB offer the residents singular and original conditions in which to work, practise and experiment their approach to filmmaking: a time-space of one year, a fixed cash grant for the writing work, aid in terms of equipment, interest in and support for the creative process, a specific contribution in terms of communication, promotion and distribution.
