Observing everyday life
Since its first edition, home cinema has occupied a privileged place in the MajorDocs programme. The home movies and cassettes filmed by our grandparents, parents and children make up unrepeatable material of the intimate memory of the private. These films have often been recycled by filmmakers, giving new meaning to an apparently happy past and forming some of the most personal views of contemporary documentary.
In this edition, we claim the value of these films whose original gesture does not stem from artistic ambition, but from the human and anonymous desire to construct a memory of individuals, families and territories. Filmmakers and professionals will share their experiences in this cinema from an ethical, critical and practical perspective in some of the sessions where the philosophy and wounds of creation will continue to take part of the morning programme.
