You coming tonight?

Are you planting them upside down?

Fool! this isn't an enclosure; it's to

guard against scavenging animals!

Oblong smudges...

She sure needs some.

Wait :
for the ones

I transplanted.

the harvest looks promising.

Shut up ! you're always complaining!

So, over your laziness, huh?

Laziness is a right,

not a privilege!

this bird isn't bad at all,

a little small though!

- and tomorrow, and the day after?

- if we want to eat we'll have to plant!

comrade farmers,

your turn to speak!

we have everything to learn from you!

Here we are, in school; we're going

to learn to seed and work the land.

we'll need shovels, garden forks,

hoes, a plow...

- and seeds.

- sure!

we'll have to buy them!

I propose we send some people to Palmeira.

Giovanni speaks Portuguese,

and Rocco is learned in cultures.

Let's take up a collection

to buy tools.

all my savings!

here's all I've got

You know I don't have a dime...

Search him, he's hiding dough!

hey, you haven't lost the

Emperor's letter, have you?

It's here.

just to be sure...

Long live the emperor!

Jean-Louis Comolli

Jean-Louis Comolli (born 30 July 1941) is a French writer, editor, and film director. He was editor in chief of Cahiers du cinéma from 1966 to 1978, during which period he wrote the influential essays "Machines of the Visible" (1971) and "Technique and Ideology: Camera, Perspective, Depth of Field" (1971-2), both of which have been translated in English anthologies of film and media studies. This work was important in the discussion on apparatus theory, an attempt to rethink cinema as a site for the production and maintenance of dominant state ideology in the wake of May 1968. After his tenure at Cahiers, Comolli continued his work as a director and has since published numerous works on film theory, documentary, and jazz. He currently teaches film theory at the Universities of Paris VIII, Barcelona, Strasburg and Genève.In the spring of 2008, Comolli was invited to the Visions du réel documentary film festival in Nyon, Switzerland, where he developed his theory of documentary cinema. more…
