Extract from the material of the documentary film project 'Le beau danger'.
The film is a cinematic arrangment between documentary portrait
and literary text. Interwoven with the moving image and divided into one
hundred and seventy black and white text screens we read the work of the
Romanian author Norman Manea. It is the attempt to have image and text
question eachother and respond to eachother. Arising from the observation
of the present of the author, which is also our present, the inner conflict of
our time becomes visible, a conflict in which information becomes the
counterpart of experience and therefore also of the memory itself.
