Alone with My Horse in the Snow, Axel Bogousslavsky (Tout seul avec mon cheval dans la neige, Axel Bogousslavsky)
With director Alexandre Barry in person
Dir. Alexandre Barry. France, 2014, 70 mins. New York premiere. Alexandre Barry captures Axel Bogousslavsky making music, drawing, dreaming, eating, breathing fresh air, warming up by the fireplace, and walking in the middle of the night. This exquisite study of the daily life of the 76-year-old poet and actor who worked with Marguerite Duras is a meditative and unforgettable experience, a reflection on memory and on living in the moment. Showing with Two Museums (Dir. Heinz Emigholz. Germany, 2014, 18 mins. New York premiere.) Part of Emigholz’s series on visionary twentieth-century architects, this work captures the common themes in Samuel Bickel’s Museum of Art (Ein Harod, Israel) and Renzo Piano’s The Menil Collection (Houston, Texas).
