Sixpack France is very pleased to announce the projection of its first short movie “It was on earth that i knew joy” directed by Jean-Baptiste de Laubier, on February 20th 2010 at Scion Gallery (Los Angeles), on the occasion of an exhibition of the same name.
« It was on earth that i knew joy » is similar to theses stories where everything seems to happen naturally.
A statement of the obvious for so long contained within us and finally granted…
Sixpack France has always felt close to the Seventh Art.
Our label has grown, influenced and immerged by the aesthetic of experimental or avant-garde film makers such as Alejandro Jodorowski, Michelangelo Antonioni, Kenneth Anger…and obviously Chris Marker.
But Cinema was still a blank media, a new world for us to explore …
The impulsion was to transgress our own limits.
As usual, never press the STOP button.
Challenging ourselves and add a new art sphere.
The film appeared as the natural progression of our « Past, Present, Future » collection, a travelling line through images, already dedicated to Chris Marker’s SCI-FI LO-FI movie “La Jetée”.
An obvious epic with Jean Baptiste de Laubier, DJ and producer (Para One), graduated from la FEMIS, who carried his first videos to Chris Marker’s house at 19 year-old.
The movie will be presented as a private projection at the famous SCION gallery in Los Angeles on February 20th 2010.
On this special occasion, Sixpack France will invite artists all coming from the international modern and contemporary art scene to create an authentic interpretation around the movie.
