CUTAWAYS

Role: STYLIST

Dir: Agnieszka Kurant


Cutaways concentrates on the invisible universe of film’s phantom characters, who have been completely removed from the final cut of feature films, leaving no apparent trace in the stories while still having strangely participated in them. These characters have become the surplus ghosts of completed movies, ghostly co-authors of 'finished products.'

The film aims to delve into the unexplored potential carried by these characters, and the real symbolic force that this potential could offer. The film addresses this no man’s land as the junkyard of film History, a timeless space where all these unused characters “live,” a reemergence of cinema’s subconscious.


Cutaways, produced in collaboration with legendary editor, Walter Murch, narrates the encounter of three cut-out characters, played by the original actors: Charlotte Rampling cut from Richard C. Sarafian’s Vanishing Point, Abe Vigoda as protagonist Harry Caul’s lawyer and best friend in Francis Ford Coppola’s The Conversation, and Dick Miller as Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction junkyard owner.

An extensive list of other cut out characters from the history of cinema appears in the film’s end credits.

Li Yan

Role: STYLIST 

Dir: Philippe Parreno


Li Yan depicts a city suspended between day and night, in the liminal hour that is dusk or dawn. Descending through the clouds, the camera enters an uncannily vacant city. Then we see a young woman walking alone through a park. The amplified sound implies a sense of movement through a series of fixed shots. These sounds, along with small disturbances in the environment, hint at an unseen, alien presence.


Shot on location in New York City, the film is a dream, or a series of memories, that incorporates images from several of Parreno’s earlier films: C.H.Z.,Credits, and The Boy From Mars. Recalling another of Parreno’s New York films, the young woman playing Li Yan is the mother of the boy who features in the film InvisibleBoy.
