Claude Pérès' interview

Claude Pérès explains his wanting to make this movie:

What was the original idea?
I’ve been really intrigued by the first seconds of those Big Brother TV Shows. When you have this feeling you are going to see a bunch of people making up their own rules, building something like the beginning of a society, with some archaisms perhaps and some innovative stuff… That’s the thing of Social Contract thinkers. Rousseau, Locke, Hobbes, all tried to figure out what would be a human before society... (view more...)

The project Without qualities is launched!

Director Claude Pérès brought together the Swiss Poet Heike Fiedler, the American choregrapher Ann Liv Young, the Bulgarian performer Voin de Voin, the French philosopher Sharon Tate, the Australian director Michael Salerno, the French performer Myriam Brabant, the British cinematographer Natal Haziza for one day within the prestigious Ménagerie de Verre and in the streets of Paris where they provoked bystanders.

The shooting was astonishing. Thanks to the outrageously talented performers who brought a cirkus in Paris. And the bystanders surprinsingly plaid ball!

The editing will be overwhelming with such a rich material...

More info coming soon!

About Without qualities: "a good big brother show"

Director Claude Pérès is working on his next feature film "Without Qualities", where he will bring together for one day a bunch of performers without giving them any indication.

For political and artistic reasons, Pérès wants to question the usual conditions of production of movies and experiment a different process. He will meticulously work on a concept that allows everybody to act freely.

About the project, Claude Pérès says: "The first seconds of those Big Brother shows are always really promissing, when you think you're going to observe a group of people making up their own rules. It feels like you are going to understand something about society. But then the whole concept always turns out to be traped and you realize that nothing good will come out of it. Our movie would be like a good, interesting, honnest Big Brother... So it won't be like Big Brother!"
