    IN HER BLACKSMITH EYE

    Directed by Guy Pelletier and Pierre Bundock 2012 19 min
    Filmmakers Guy Pelletier and Pierre Bundock carved a film where we are witnesses the creation of a metallic sculpture by French-Canadian artist Marie-Josée Roy.
    We follow the artist from the very beginning, as she hammers her way in raw material.
    Three parallel point of views interact, until the final encounter with the finished piece.
    The first one: a plain, natural observation of the artist working.
    The second one: a fantasy about how the sculpture itself could 'experience' its own birth and first perceptions of the world. This fantasy is done by way of Stop-Motion technique.
    The third one being the artist herself silently giving us hints about her views on her work. Those thoughts appear as 'fire words' emerging from her eye. Those words are in french with accompanying English, Spanish and Mandarin stylized subtitles.
    This film is, for the most part, completely improvised: the filmmakers wanted to 'live' the artist's own way of creating. Marie-Josee Roy work in a unique way: she approach her work with 'candeur' and humility. She never really knows what is going to emerge from the raw metallic material. The filmmakers decided to do so.
