A Wednesday ritual: creating photo romans in her cafe office

"Plus qu'une habitude, le café matinal est un rituel. Seul(e) ou en compagnie, ce moment d'intimité marque la journée qui va suivre. Pour les personnes qui exercent des professions indépendantes, les cafés constituent un bureau mobile où, selon les humeurs et les rendez-vous, les espaces prennent d'autres dimensions. Tous les mercredis, Lia Rochas-Pàris rencontre une personnalité dans un café : en images et en bulles. Et avec l'intégralité de la conversation à la suite."

(Lia Rochas-Paris)

La Jetee: a science-fiction film about time, memory and history

"This is the story of a man, marked by an image from his childhood. The violent scene that upsets him, and whose meaning he was to grasp only years later, happened on the main jetty at Orly, the Paris airport, sometime before the outbreak of World War III.

Orly, Sunday. Parents used to take their children there to watch the departing planes.

On this particular Sunday, the child whose story we are telling was bound to remember the frozen sun, the setting at the end of the jetty, and a woman's face.

Nothing sorts out memories from ordinary moments. Later on they do claim remembrance when they show their scars. That face he had seen was to be the only peacetime image to survive the war. Had he really seen it? Or had he invented that tender moment to prop up the madness to come?

The sudden roar, the woman's gesture, the crumpling body, and the cries of the crowd on the jetty blurred by fear.

Later, he knew he had seen a man die.

And sometime after came the destruction of Paris. ..."

(Chris Marker, 1962)
