To be able to show today these short animations is the result of an adventure.
When Agnes Varda was preparing the film "Jacquot de Nantes" in 1990 she was able to film in the small apartment and even the garage, whe...展开re Jacques had been brought up.
In the course of emptying out the attic so as to recreate the small studio which Jacques had set up at that time, Mireille Henrio, the archivist, and Agnes found scraps of 9.5 mm film stock, dry, creased and almost ruined, and two small cutout cardboard figures. It turned out to be impossible to project the original films, so an attempt was made to remake them.
ATTAQUE NOCTURNE (NIGHT ATTACK)
This film only existed in Jacques' memory, for all that remained were the cardboard cutouts of the two robbers. With the help of a designer Jacques drew on his memories to recreate the decor and the characters. The camera operator then photographed each image so as to reconstitute the film.
