Before bowing out, the SunSète festival fires up one last visual and urban fire!

Before bowing out, the SunSète festival fires up one last visual and urban fire!

Jean-Baptiste Durand, dont on ne se lasse pas du premier film “Chien de la casse”, sera au centre d’une journée spéciale le 27 juin. BAC FILMS

The 8th edition of the SunSète festival takes place from Wednesday 26 to Sunday 30 June, at the Chai des Moulins. It will also be its last: plagued by financial difficulties, the event which combines films, series, clips and urban music throws in the towel. In the meantime, we can enjoy meetings with filmmaker Jean-Baptiste Durand and clipper Lionel Hirlé, and multiple events and screenings.

As long as there is life… there is life! Without hope for its sustainability, the SunSète festival has already announced that its 8th edition, which takes place from June 26 to 30, will be its last, due to insurmountable financial difficulties. Nevertheless, for the moment, he is alive, he is even at full strength since it is gone!

These next few days it will therefore be a question of discussing the audiovisual influence of hip-hop, of highlighting emerging production in Occitania and of showing cinema as well as rap invested. "The articulation of these three bases around films, series and clips, aims to broadcast innovative forms of narration on the big screen", justify the organizers."By questioning emerging and pioneering cinematographic gestures, our festival places itself at the service of young creation, audiences and cinemas."

In the presence of Apple

Today, Wednesday June 26, we don't want to miss the screening, at 6 p.m. and 15 p.m., at the Comoedia du film The Silver Venus by Hélène Klotz with Claire Pommet (known as Pomme) and Sofiane Zermani (aka Fianso). The wonderful singer, and therefore now also an actress (ultra promising) should normally be present, since she then performs that same day at the Théâtre de la Mer as part of the song festival When I think of Fernande (don’t insist, it’s complete). To console yourself for not seeing her on stage, we recommend heading to the private beach La Ola, where SunSète has planned a choreographic workshop, a dance performance, and an open-air screening of the film Flashdance by Adrian Lyne and finally an 80’s dancefloor.*

A day with Jean-Baptiste Durand

Thursday June 27, it's THE day in (good!) company of Jean-Baptiste Durand. Since the critical and public triumph of his first feature film (Cesarized!) Dog from the Junkyard with Anthony Bajon, Raphaël Quenard and  Galatea Bellugi, the Montpellier filmmaker did what only the greats know how to do: change nothing!

Available, it will be at the Mitterrand media library at 10:30 a.m. to accompany three of his short films, then at 6:00 p.m. at The Rio (7 quai Léopold-Suquet) for a meeting hosted by Mathilde Guitton-Mardon, course programmer at Cinemed, followed by the screening of a new series of her short films. Finally, at 9 p.m., he will accompany a special screening of his first film at the Comoedia cinema.

Gringe is in the place

The day of June 28 will be marked by carte blanche to Lionel Hirlé, winner of the Victoires de la Musique for his clips for Makebaby Jain and Basique by Orelsan, at the Passerelle from 7:30 p.m. This solid talent, who sees the clip as a "laboratory of experiments" has just added a string to his bow (to his art!) with cinema: he has signed his first short film #Followme with Oulaya Amamra, godmother of SunSète in 2022, and Gringe, the pair from Orlesan, guest this year. Always Friday, at Comoedia, you should not miss the preview of’ rsquo;Eat the night by Caroline Poggi and Jonathan Vinel.

From Saturday June 29, we will especially remember here the focus on Guillaume Tranchant, alias Gringe, a rapper as much as an actor to always follow closely: from 6 p.m., at the Moulins winery, we will be able to see #Followme by Lionel Hirlé, the first episode of the series < em>De grace by Martime Crupaux and Baptiste Fillon, and the brand new clip Du lead/Overhang effect directed by Frédéric of Pontcharra. You'll have to stick around because at 10 p.m., at Dancing, we're expecting Toulouse rapper Melan Omerta!

We will finish this very quick overview (go to the SunSète website, there are still plenty of workshops, meetings and activities which deserve your attention if you like them audiovisual and urban cultures!), highlighting the screening on Sunday June 30, at 7:45 p.m., of Order and Morality, an absolutely remarkable film directed by Mathieu Kassovitz in 2011 which recounted the tragedy of the Ouvéa cave and which we must see again today as New Caledonia is in fire and blood…
