Program Note
Driven by his fascination of black-and-white silent films from the early 20th century, Spanish filmmaker José Luis Guerin envisioned a mystical documentary of romantic fantasies that have nearly disappeared in the 21st century. As the title suggests, Some Photos in the City of Sylvia is a black- and-white silent film with the story of the narrator (perhaps the director) superimposed via captions on still photos from a city. The narrator returns to Strasbourg in search of Sylvia whom he met at a café twenty-two years ago. With his artistic, discerning eye, he finds beauty in the city and people’s faces. Formally similar to Chris Marker’s La Jetée (1962) and psychologically evocative of Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo (1958), this film seems like an urban symphony of the previous century or an essay film of the present century. A record of dazzling faces and original props that brings the fictional impulse to life through pure senses. (KANG Sowon)

José Luis GUERIN
José Luis Guerin was born in 1960 in Barcelona, Spain. He is a filmmaker who is in search of new forms of narrative and dramaturgy. After working on experimental films from the mid-1970s to early 1980s, he began to draw attention when he was invited to the Forum, Berlin International Film Festival, with his debut feature film, Berta′s Motive (1984). Since then, he has been building his own unique and experimental art world, crossing over the border of documentaries and narrative features. His filmography includes Innisfree (1990), Train of Shadows (1997), Work in Progress (2000), Guest (2010), and The Academy of Muses (2015). Some Photos in the City of Sylvia is a companion piece to his In the City of Sylvia (2007) in the form of a photo-essay.
