Ce n’était pas la bonne montagne, Mohammad - Film - 28min - 2019

présenté dans le cadre de l'exposition Panorama 21


“The humming of a torrent of black stars, sliding far from me and the sky. They move away and you can still hear them. They were singing on the victim’s dissected forehead, the ram that was Isaac’s expiatory sacrifice, and between its dry and ageless horns, no longer angry or desiring to fight, engraved the image of sorrow. I knew that nobody was innocent in this world, not even the world itself, nor the song itself, nor the ram that prevented Abraham’s crime. The world-self is gone, I have understood this and now I must carry it wherever I go.”

Dr. Almog Behar

I chose to tell this story in a 3D video-game ambience that turns out to be fairly close to the image I have of the Bible. Both 3D and the Bible guide us towards primary perceptions and remind us of our first encounter with the world and the first time we found our place there.

Mili Pecherer

After wandering for thousands of years, two immigrants from France and the USSR settled in the Promised Land. Mili Pecherer was born from their love in 1988.

Mili chose to rediscover her nomadic roots and since then her soul has travelled down big paths, equipped with a little camera. She sporadically documents her encounters with people (and other animals) in their apparently banal everyday lives, then turns them into films.

Good, almost banal and almost films.
