"Hax Pax Max" is the beginning of a magic and parodic formula destined to distract the audience while the magic trick takes shape.
During this evening of conjuring, it will be question to observe the transformation of matters and beings—gas, technology, identities—under the power of the words and gestures.
A special screening conceived by Marie Voignier, in collaboration with Caro Sposo and the Cinémathèque Robert-Lynen. With Norman McLaren, Vassilis Salpistis, Deborah Stratman, Julie Vayssière, films and archive from the Cinémathèque Robert-Lynen and the Françoise Voignier archive.
