I Donít Think I Can See an Island

Christopher Becks, Emmanuel Lefrant

I Donít Think I Can See an Island (Christopher Becks, Emmanuel Lefrant)
L'Alternativa Hall / Hall Selects - Frame by Frame (Session 1) / I Donít Think I Can See an Island


Based on footage shot on a shared vacation, two filmmakers and long-time friends finally make a film together and embark on a symbolically authentic non-Euclidean adventure.


Christopher Becks studied fine art and has a master's in philosophy. A member of the Double Negative film collective in Montreal, he currently lives and works in Berlin, where he is pursuing a PhD in philosophy and working with the Labor Berlin film collective.

Emmanuel Lefrant lives and works in Paris, where he makes self-produced films, exclusively on celluloid, that explore the idea of representing and revealing an invisible world (the secret forms of emulsion), a kind of hidden nature. In 2000 he cofounded the Nominoë collective, who have performed at many prestigious sites, including the Pompidou Centre.
