Photographer's Note

In front of Kino "Un certain regard" at international film festival de Cannes

A certain glance...
ancient projector models French Hortson 35 mm
-glances of the advertising bills
-glance of busy women

this type of projector in double in the cabins because of the changeovers in projection approximately 20, was every minutes lasted maximum. The film was locked up for reasons of fire protection in the higher casing. Another under the apparatus rolled up film after its passage. This device, into force with the films acetate which ignited quickly, remained in spite of the change of non flammable film. The swing from one apparatus to another obliged the operator to supervise the right corner in top where come a first reference mark (started engine) and 3 seconds afterwards, a new reference mark to rock the shutters light. These reference marks are hardly visible on the screen and are is crosses scraped on the film by the operator or a circle. Today, the majority of films are assembled on only one reel or on plates and require one projector.
