Poet honoured by Cahiers du Cinéma

"The art of finding solutions" is the evocative title of Olivia Cooper-Hadjian's interview for the December issue of Cahiers du Cinéma. The Kazakh filmmaker discusses the importance of the rebel poet Makhambet Utemisov and the importance of language for him.

This interview is accompanied by a review of Poet by Mathieu Macheret, of which the following is an extract: "Aiming for purity, the mise en scène relies on the elementary data of the fixed shot, the variation of axis and the ellipse, allowing itself at most a few pans and even rarer travellings - a moral economy of the gaze that faithfully restores the beings in their environment, in contact with the world. Omirbayev does not impose a ready-made discourse, but lets the places speak for him.
