Abstract or Description

The history of the cinema has been mostly preoccupied with the films we see on the screen. It has largely ignored and continues to ignore the films that did not materialize as such. We have ignored and continue to ignore this other cinema: an embryonic cinema, a cinema nevertheless, that greatly surpasses in quantity, perhaps also in quality, the number of completed films. There is a dark cinema like there is a dark web: a vast territory inhabited by films that remain invisible because they were never made, never fully made, never projected as a final object but also because very rarely analyzed, discussed, brought to the light of words and debate. This short text is a call to collectively investigate this largely unexplored territory, this cinema of no.
