Time Stands Still

Jeremy Ledda Week of 5th March to 16th March
Jeremy is a photographer, filmmaker and musician based in Chalon-sur-Saône, in France, where he also works as a sound and video technician at the Media Art School. He describes his Cinéhaïku in three sentences: The end of a frantic race. His dreams are without desire. In a new playground.
Tarryn Doherty Week of 19th February to 2nd March
I am a writer/director from South Africa. I studied film and screenwriting and graduated in 2016. Since then I have been freelancing and creating as much as possible. I predominantly enjoy making poetic shorts and playing with experimental genres. I am fascinated by how film can be used as a harbinger of conceptual meaning-making.
My cinehaiku is a display of the simple concept of a fleeting moment. It is here and then it is gone. Like birds or a gentle zephyr, a perfectly timed wave or a stranger turning their back.
Chrystel Egal Week of 5th February and 16th February 2018
A photographer, video maker & writer, Egal describes her work as « an autobiography open to the other » to decipher, tackling existential questions that she tries to answer. She says of her Cinéhaïku:
« A metaphor of destiny.
A skate-boarder surfing between light and shade.
Wave, curve, wave. »
The last time I saw you

Antonin Duhoux Week of 8th to 19th of January 2018
Ben Middlekauf Week of 25th December to 5th of January 2018
As a New York based filmmaker, my passion is to bring visions to life. My Cinéhaïku was inspired by my love for warmth on cold, dark days. I love to focus in on little details that others might glance over: the crease of a book, the steam from my drink, the waves a raindrop generates. Together, these little details can generate a powerful emotion.
Micah Raburn Week of 11th December to 22nd of December 2017
My name is Micah Raburn and I have a strong interest in film and Asian art. I spent my early college career taking art classes, teaching myself how to illustrate, and doing research on Japanese Ukiyo-e prints and Asian history in general. I discovered my passion for film in my second semester at San Jose State University and am currently a film major with a art history minor.
My Cinéhaïku is based on a painting, called « The Universe », by the Japanese Zen Buddhist monk Sengai. The rectangle border represents the objective world, the triangle border represents humans, and the circle border represents the Dharmakaya or ultimate reality. Each shot further visualizes the meaning behind their borders. The grass imitates how humans tend to keep their heads down and focused on earthly matters, the girl looking up shows how humans can change their perspective, and the upward shot of the gingko tree displays how humans can use the natural forces of this world to gain a since of purpose beyond gathering material possessions.
Olatz Perez Week of 27th November to 8th of December 2017
I am audiovisual filmmaking student in the Basque Country. When I was 13 years old my parents gave me a camera and I began taking photos. I have loved films and writing since I was a child and I have always known I wanted to study something related to this. Regarding the film, I had an idea about what haikus communicated to me, so I prepared the screenplay and began to film it with the help of a classmate, who is the actor of the film. I wanted to convey the power of the human and the relationship between it and nature, so I decided to use a red rose as a symbol of nature.
Erika Nieva da Cunha Week of 13th October to 24th of November 2017
Constance Boulay Semaine du 30 Octobre au 10 Novembre 2017
J’ai 30 ans et je suis artiste plasticienne autodidacte. La vidéo est mon médium favori. car elle est instantanée. J’aime enregistrer des moments de vie que je trouve beaux parce qu’ils sont éphémères. La poésie visuelle est au cœur de ma démarche artistique, tout comme l’impermanence des choses.
The Moon and I
Benjamin Choiselat-Meyohas Semaine du 16 au 27 Octobre 2017
J’ai 20 ans et je suis étudiant en cinéma à Paris. J’ai toujours été intéressé par l’écriture et la mise en scène ce qui a confirmé le milieu dans lequel j’aimerais travailler. Je me destine à la réalisation de vidéo, de film d’essai, de performance etc dans le monde de l’art contemporain. Les poèmes haïkus m’ont toujours touchés par leur simplicité si sincère et j’ai trouvé très intéressant d’utiliser leur forme et de retranscrire l’ essence de ces poèmes japonais à travers le cinéma.
Raphaël Venayre Semaine du 2 au 14 octobre 2017
I’m a student in France, a big fan of cinema and video, i made a lot of video alone or with my Friends, just because i love it, it’s my passion.
