Many years ago, I discovered a Super 8 film made by my grand father as an amateur during a professional journey in China during the Cultural Revolution in 1966. I took hold of this exceptional object to bring it back 40 years later on its original sites. My intention was to propose to the people I met to look at the 1966 film with the help of a DVD player, to ask them to react and to confront these images from their past with the ones from contemporary China. My questioning and my Â« inquiry Â» were about topography and memories of sites where the film was shot, and about the individual and collective memory.
