L’incident diplomatique nous pend au nez (translated: the diplomatic incident is looming) is a film-installation with actual animated film models and sets. This short film tells the story of an adventurous Canadian world traveller, Harrison Tillson Lever. During Museum Night Fever 2019, all the material used to make the film will be exhibited and set in motion by a team of performers in the lobby of CINEMATEK. They will recreate the entire short-film so you can watch it on screen continuously throughout the evening. Both scenographer and visual artist, Hélène Meyssirel makes small storytelling machines that she uses in live shows or performances.
