The Lucca Film Festival is an annual celevration of independent and experimental film & art featuring 5 days of screenings, lectures, performances, and exhibitions.
After having hosted greats like Kenneth Anger, Stephen Dwoskin, Michael Snow and Jonas Mekas, this year the festival will be organizing a film and gallery retrospective of Robert Cahen’s works in collaboration with the Ragghianti Foundation. (www.fondazioneragghianti.it)
Robert Cahen's work with video first developed as the result of his studies of electroacoustic composition with Michel Chion and Pierre Schaeffer at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique (CNSM) in Paris in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Within this context, Cahen developed a video aesthetic grounded in the principles of time in musical structuring and the ambivalence of the various 'time zones' interacting with each other. As a video artist, he claims, he has nothing else to experiment and now he is investigating in the video installation field.
