Chapter 3: Le Cinéma Club
With films by: Gabriel Abrantes, Ayo Akingbade, Meriem Bennani & Orian Barki, Wong Ping, Alice Rohrwacher, Sara Sadik, Erica Sheu, Orfeo Tagiuri
The third chapter of Daybed begins on 7 September and is born from the collaboration with Le Cinéma Club, a uniquely curated streaming platform screening one film every week, for free. Available for seven days to all visitors globally, selections vary in genre and length, with special attention given to short formats.
The program proposed by Le Cinéma Club, specifically for Daybed, highlights one of the streaming project’s main missions: to listen to the voiced of a new generation of filmmakers. The films selected are all recent international productions, using diverse formats and technologies, ranging from 16mm or HD Video to hand-drawn animation or video game graphics.
The daybed is transformed into a setting that touches on our sense of comfort and the habitual intimacy that arrises when we are in a domestic space, like watching a film under the covers.
This chapter was developed in close collaboration with Scott Ponik.
