THE FIRST COLLECTION
The rst collection was the name of the very rst publication of Capricci. The collection is also called rst because every publication from the collection is di erent. Every book could be considered as a series of its own: interviews, shooting diaries, monographs, unpublished scripts, biographies, autobiographies, memoirs... From philosophical essays to rst-person writing, from unpublished texts to classics, and to translations from English, German, and Japanese, The rst collection explores all possibilities in writings on lm.
5JEAN-CLAUDE BIETTE, THE SENSE OF PARADOXEPierre Lon Filmmaker and critic, Jean-Claude Biette has directed seven fi lms. In this both scholarly and playful book, Pierre Lon traces a meandering body of work from one fi lm to another (and not necessarily in chronologi-cal order). The ironic realism of this fi lmmaker ended prematurely with his death 2003. The work of a pe-destrian, runaway artist, a Democratic poet describing a mysterious world of secrets big and small. In this world, guarded by an army of conspirators, labrynthes and mazes, everything is possible dreams as well as disasters.
