The Films of the World The Bed and the Street Don’t Work (1968–2018) 1 2 2018 (88’) France Director: César Vayssié Elsa Michaud and Gabriel Gauthier are both students at the Beaux-Arts school in Paris. They are in a relationship and conduct artistic research together. They become artists in chaotic times. The footage, without dialogue, hypnotised by the music of the duo Avia X Orly, combines gestures, symbols, world events and the everyday life of the two students from March 2017 to March 2018. The film harnesses the frenzy of the digital flow through a visual proposal. It presents the paradoxes of a society celebrating the events of May 68, fifty years on. Original language: French Cinematographer: César Vayssié Editor: César Vayssié Producer: Thomas Ordonneau, Caroline Redy, SHELLAC, SHELLAC Sud, AFE Contact: César Vayssié W: cesarvayssie.com César Vayssié produces films and performances. At the intersection of visual arts and dance, his work sidesteps all classification. His artist status is emblematic of a work permanently trying to find itself, starting from intra and extra cinematographic influences. After graduating from Beaux-Arts (art school), he joined the Académie de France – Villa Medici in Rome as a filmmaker. Alongside UFE, he created UFE performance at MuCEM - Actoral 15. During FIAC 2016 in Paris, Vayssié premiered his piece „COPROUDUCTION“, a series of improvised duets with experienced performers.
