Two of international cinema’s most creative and unique filmmakers and essayists. Epstein’s last film, Le Tempestaire, ambitiously deploys sound and image to create a powerful poem to the raging sea. L’Hypothèse was described by Ian Christie as “a film unlike any other, an interpretation of some forgotten paintings that becomes a guided tour of a fantastic gallery of ‘living pictures’. In a series of haunting images Ruiz explores the relationship between words and pictures that is cinema.”
