The old Rhodiacéta factory in Besançon became an emblematic site after filmmakers including Chris Marker and Jean-Luc Godard collaborated with the workers there for the creation of various films. Today the site will be demolished in order to create something new. The demolition raises questions: should something be kept? If so what? And how? During this process, the memories that are attached to the site morph and fossilize themselves into different shapes: into architecture, into signs, and into vernacular forms. This film-essay focuses on the gestures and their meanings, in action, within this crystallization. After studies in photography and video at HEAD in Geneva, the School of Visual art of New York and the Städelschule in Frankfurt, filmmaker and visual artist Chloé Malcotti currently lives and works in Brussels.
