FICXLAB is a section of the Gijón International Film Festival organized by LABoral, whose objective is to introduce video art and experimental cinema within the framework of a film competition like the one in Gijón. In its second edition, FICXLAB insists on the need to provide the viewer with tools that help them unravel the knot of images that shapes the complex reality we live.

  • FOCUS: FRANCE

Presentation of the work of two French authors Jean-Charles Fitoussi and Eric Baudelaire. Without becoming part of the independent cinema establishment, his works can be seen at international festivals such as Mar de Plata, Cannes or Toronto, being at the same time highly valued for a form of artistic work that seeks to expand the limits of traditional cinematographic narrative. Baudelaire’s work has also been seen, in installation format, in different museums and art centers such as MACBA. He is now preparing an exhibition at Fredericianum in Kassel that will open during the Festival.

Jean-Charles Fitoussi: Je ne suis pas morte, 2008. 190′, color, 35 mm Date: November 25 Time: 3:30 p.m. Place: Room 4. Cines Centro, Gijón

Eric Baudelaire: Letters to Max, 2014. 104’Date: November 27 Time: 5 p.m. Place: Room 3. Cines Centro, Gijón
