Special Mention of the International Jury at Oberhausen
"Journal" follows the production of narratives while piercing through points of view and lenses of three photographers. The film reflects upon the way spectatorship is performed, and how positions are taken in front of images, historical documents and the production of collective memory.
The film is a collection of one-shot sequences, filmed in a photography exhibition. The cinematographer, who followed a set parcours in the exhibition space, produced a multiplicity of visual Journals, from a dual point-of-view of a visitor and a documenter.
