We are Winning, Don’t Forget: Jean-Gabriel Périot at the MoMA & North American Tour

With Jean-Gabriel Périot

Jean-Gabriel Périot, born in France in 1974, has over the past fifteen years perfected an innovative filmmaking approach by focusing on archival editing. Moving image and photographic archives make up the raw material of his shorts, which are edited to create an impressionistic story or narrative, typically aided by compelling soundtracks.  Périot’s work is distinguished for its intense, emotional approach to contemporary and historic political themes.

Despite the labor intensive process of compiling a film via multiple edited images, Périot has made numerous short films using digital video and/or film that reside within combined documentary/essay, animation, and experimental genres.  His works have been honored with many prizes and shown worldwide in numerous festivals, institutions, and cinemas.

– Sally Berger, Department of Film, MoMA

Périot’s first travel to the US begins at the Museum of Modern Art on April 8 as part of Modern Mondays, organized for the Museum by Sally Berger, Assistant Curator, The Department of Film, MoMA.

This national tour We Are Winning, Don’t Forget, is organized by Amélie Garin-Davet and Steve Holmgren, and is presented with support from UnionDocsThe Cultural Services of the French Embassy, Cine2000/French American Cultural Exchange and the Museum of Modern Art.
