Abstract [en]

Los Angeles in 1980, beyond the image of glamorous Hollywood: Agnès Varda arranges a series of enduring static framings, or tableaux vivants, where Sabine Mamou acts as her alter ego, a newly arrived French author and single mother. Mathieu Demy, Varda’s own son, features as the son. The title of the film Documenteur (Agnès Varda, 1981), plays with the French word for ‘liar’, menteur, underscoring the role of artifice with which the director aims at a genuine something that she wished for the film to convey. This paper proposes a reassessment of both ‘authenticity’ and ‘enactment’ through, and in dialogue with, this and other classical and recent documentary allegories (Russell, 1998), to highlight cinema as ‘an art of the gesture’ (Agamben, 2006 [1996]) and acting in the sense of a collaborate project to forge an image of shared experience and a sounding of lived time (Wahlberg, 2018). Special attention will be paid to documentary experiences of filmed subjects in the act of speaking, to direct sound and its opposite (Chion, 1994; Honess Roe and Maria Pramaggiore, 2018), to cinematic silence as a sounding event of time passing.
