Alex Pou

Great Capricorn

The film draws from the real story of Knud Viktor, an eremite living in a forest in southern france. Knud viktor hears everything – from worms piercing holes through the trees to meteorites entering the atmosphere. His internal machine doesn’t function properly: his vision of the world is cannibalised by his hearing. He is one with the world.

Alex Pou

Born in 1974 in Revin.

Lives and works in Paris.

Since 2004, Alex Pou has been making videos and films which are projected in art centers, galleries and cinemas. In parallel with his film-making, he teaches at the Beaux-Arts in Clermant-Ferrand (ESACM), where he works with invited artists and students on collective films, such as Un film infini (An Infinite Film), a film with no screenplay, no fixed length and no determined author. He also questions the notion of “performed” cinema. In addition he makes drawings, which he sees as a form of screenplay for films that it would be impossible to make, using collage in place of editing, image in place of screening/projection, writing as screenplay or dialogue, superimposing as rush, dimension as length. He was in residence at the Espace Khiasma in 2011-2012 (in Les Lilas), where he developed part of the writing and research for his film History of shadow (history of France).
