Over the past 15 years Jean-Gabriel Périot (French, b. 1974) has perfected an innovative filmmaking approach by focusing on archival editing. Moving image and photographic archives make up the raw material of his short films, which are edited to create impressionistic narratives, typically aided by compelling soundtracks. Périot’s work, which is distinguished by an intense, emotional approach to contemporary and historic political themes, has been honored with several prizes and has been exhibited worldwide. For this event, his first U.S. appearance, Périot presents approximately 10 of his short films, many of which are New York premieres.
