“Cinématon is a series of film portraits that expose a personality of the arts, culture, politics, and show business, in one single fixed and silent shot in which everyone is free to do as they please”.

Gérard Courant

“It would be a mistake to believe Cinématon deals with sadism or masochism. There aren’t any sadist or masochist relationships between the people featured and the director. It’s more like an issue of pleasure/pain. The pleasure is for the experience of being in front of a camera. The suffering is for staying. And, for the filmmaker, the pleasure comes from filming.

You could even say this suffering and this pleasure are inseparable –that they are not two complementing qualities, but rather a single unique one. Of course, all the participants are committed to accept the rules of Cinématon. The simple fact of lending themselves to that game implies, first of all, that they’re willing to be chained to the camera, and as the film advances also their wish to free themselves, get out, leave everything behind, of saying ‘Stop’”.

Michel Foucault, December 3rd,1981
