“One day, on the coasts of Morocco, some
one hundred and fifty years ago, thousands
of antelopes threw themselves into the sea.”
Thus begins a two-page text from a special
issue of Les Cahiers du Cinema guest edited
by Marguerite Dumas in June 1980. The author
of the beautiful Trois Histoires de Borges (FID
2014) as well as of some recent polemical
pieces, Maxime Martinot mobilises this cryptic
prose, an animal fable whose argument remains
elusive, and illustrates it, literally, with images of
antelopes running wild. In so doing he shines,
scathingly as well as elegantly, a contemporary
light on current political events.
