L’AUTHENTIQUE PROCÈS DE CARL EMMANUEL JUNG

With Maurice Poullenot & Jane Le Gal.

“[This film], the irrefutable cinematic reality, is the imaginary trial of a fake war criminal for crimes whose images we never see, and are only verbalized. Non-synchronous statements, atonal, without passion, describe the immeasurable Nazi crime. Refusal to show that which can’t be seen, yet images and cinematic sounds whose articulation allow the viewer interstices in which to ‘work.’ By showing too much, one proves nothing, undoes nothing, and can only open a fake window on a fictional life. The authentic trial of Carl E. Jung is a metaphoric series of movements about, around Nazism: to set apart the image of Nazism, give it a distance, so as to name it better, show it as something close, familiar, and finally shocking – for we recognize ourselves – we are already there.” –Marcel Hanoun

“A masterpiece that it is about time to add into the canon of filmic history – after almost 70 years of meditations on poetry after Auschwitz – as a classic.” –Nicole Brenez
