On civil war by Jean-Michel Espitallier

Nicolas Barrié lives in Paris and his latest videos are experiments in narrative forms and collaborations with contemporary writers whose work lends itself to filmic reconstitution. Barrié considers his work to be literary video-essays. The French musician Fabrice Coulon composes the ambient soundracks of his films. "Of Civil War" the first of several video-works based on the poetry of Jean-Michel Espitallier. Barrié has shown his work in La galerie du jeu de Paume in Paris, the Cinematheque in Toulouse, and at the Contemporary Art Center in Albi.
