When painter Angela Ricci Lucchi and architect Yervant Gianikian met in 1974, this triggered one of the most exciting collaborations in the history of cinema, spanning 44 years, as the pair became internationally known for their sensual, poetic, and critical work on “found footage.” They invented an “analytic camera” that allowed them to re-read, one frame at a time, archival material that was then slowed down, reframed, and colorized. To commemorate Ricci Lucchi’s passing in February 2018, and in collaboration with Gianikian (who will be present via Skype), we have made a selection of some of the 50-odd films they made together.
