COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

Pas de résumé français disponible

Night Horse uses a kind of imagery that one perhaps not automatically links to the visual language of a security camera. Rather than registering a clearly identifiable surveillance image of a specific location at a specific time, the cameras used in Night Horse —through their malfunctioning lens or incorrect video setting— add their own augmented reality to the one perceptible through human eyes.
This ironically is quite contradictory to their original purpose of surveillance, and thus adds an interesting layer to their images. Depending on how and when you enter the world of Night Horse it can be colourful, obscure, psychedelic, dystopian, meditative, unsettling...
The blending of this mix of atmospheres into one entirety that stays consistent and somehow "makes sense" posed an exciting challenge during the creation process. Naturally the overall feel of the film is equally characterized by the audio blanket —composed by French veteran Eliane Radigue — that seals the visuals softly, though hermetically.
None of the images used in Night Horse were previously recorded by third parties. They were all live recorded (and framed) from the various video streams that I "found" online. In that sense the film could perhaps still be described as a contemporary "found footage" film.
