Méditerranée (1963)

France 42m, Colour
Director: Jean-Daniel Pollet and Volker Schlöndorff

Méditerranée (1963)This short enigmatic film is a collection of seemingly disparate images which are repeated as a visual representation of the Mediterranean over time. Clues to the meaning of these images are cryptically provided by the narrator, suggesting that the Mediterranean is an accumulation of ghosts, with a history that is continuously rewritten amid its ancient ruins. As pieces of a game, destined to be picked up and played again, Méditerranée, like the unrelenting waves on the sea, is intended as a “theatre of the millennia” (Klaus Ming March 2016).
