Cinema / Photography, Theory / History / Criticism
In collaboration with Re:Voir, Paris Expérimental published, in 1997, The Walden Book, to accompany the release of a boxset of the homonymous film by Jonas Mekas. It is an annotation of each cut in the film, interspersed with a selection of the best texts by theorists, filmmakers and poets, mostly American or French, devoted to one of the most beautiful films in the world. A literally infinite book: to pick up at the point where the beginning reaches its end ...

This book accompanied the first European release of Walden on VHS published by Re:Voir Video, now available apart from the original boxset, which is now out of print.
