The Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève welcomes Caroline Poggi & Jonathan Vinel for a screening event on Thursday, January 11 from 6.30pm.
Caroline Poggi and Jonathan Vinel have been co-directing films for ten years. Set against the backdrop of the disarray and excesses of a youth lost in a cold, violent world, the two filmmakers explore crumbling worlds in which characters seek to give meaning to their lives. Whether it is through their debut feature Jessica Forever, or through their short and medium-length films, they follow the destiny of their own generation. A generation that feeds on heroism through the virtual, a generation that encountered porn before love and online violence before friendship, a generation for whom video games are their lost paradise.
The duo will present Martin Cries (2017 16′), Baby Anger (2020, 13′) andWatch the Fire or Burn Inside It (2022, 18′).
