American Dust 2011
"This is a logbook. A film which has been improvised. A poem that is slightly too long and made from other films parts, bits of sentences, pieces of music and sounds from all around. It was written in the language of cinema, without dialogue or commentary. It is both a silent movie and a wordy one as it relates many stories, twenty or so, short, minor and forming what is called History with a capital H when put together. It is about America and, therefore, about us. Pieces of everybody’s lives put together. A child, his father, his mother, the rabbit, the dog, the flowers, your childhood, mine, ours. Native Americans, Christopher Columbus, Apollo, the moon. Each character says I. It is both anybody’s diary and everybody’s autobiography..." This is how des Pallieres has described his last opus.
