2008 release. The first DVD release on Elica is a beautiful 50-minute portrait of composer Luc Ferrari made by his friend Jacqueline Caux with Olivier Pascal, which is at the same time fully informative and acutely representative of Ferrari's spirit. Features Elise Caron and Luc Ferrari going through archive documentation, intriguing dialogues, invented autobiographies, music performances, evocative installations, sidewalk accidents, encounters with sound artist Christof Schläger and musician eRikm, and more. Documenting the work of one of the most groundbreaking and seductive composers of the 20th century, this film also shows Luc Ferrari's "extremely libertarian personality: his spontaneity, his inclination towards hedonism and sensuality, his curious and open character, his rejection of all kind of power and of all stable position within institutions, his pronounced taste for jeux, his sense of self-derision and his ferocious refusal of all dogmatism." Jacqueline Caux is a writer, film-maker, and organizer of live events. She is the author of the essential Luc Ferrari interview book Almost Nothing with Luc Ferrari (2002), as well as books on Anna Halprin and Louise Bourgeois and several experimental films and remarkable documentaries, including the highly acclaimed Cycles of the Mental Machine (2006) on Detroit techno, Tales from the Torn Symphony (2010) on the performance of Ferrari's Symphonie dechirée, and Man from Tomorrow (2014) on Jeff Mills. Olivier Pascal has collaborated with, among others, director Claude Duty. Original French version with English subtitles; NTSC region-free DVD in large format digipak cover with notes in French and English by Jacqueline Caux.
