Vendredi Soir (Friday Night), dir. Claire Denis (2002)
Cinema is a materialization of our psychic life. It makes visibly tangible all psychic phenomena, including the work of memory and the imagination, the capacity for attention, the design of depth and movement, and the mapping of affects.
…Film repeatedly shows that pictures–moving pictures–are the current documents of our histories. Indeed, filmic memories–fragile yet enduring–are fragments of an archival process porously embedded in our path, part of our own shifting geography.
–Giuliana Bruno, Public Intimacy: Architecture and the Visual Arts (2007)
