This artist’s book, based on French director Philippe Terrier-Hermann’s eponymous film project, was produced in California with the participation of 30 American and European actors. Presented as film stills from an “imagined” movie, each of the four parts depicts characters involved in a narrative, which the viewer must read in a purely visual manner. Among the actors are Sharon Stone, Marshall Bell, Douglas Booth, Ashley Hinshaw, Guy Burnet, Béatrice Rosen, Roxane Mesquida, Nicole Garcia and Stéphanie Sokolinski. Texts by Veronica Gonzalez, Mark von Schlegell and Masha Tupitsyn elaborate on the concept, a staging of reality that questions the very fictionality of cinema.
