Abel Ferrara not guilty by Rafi Pitts( Visual )

22 editions published between 2003 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Caméra à l'épaule, tournant sans discontinuer quitte à ce que la pellicule décroche, Rafi Pitts choisit le reportage d'investigation pour filmer un Abel Ferrara qui se montre fidèle à sa réputation de provocateur. Il colle ainsi à l'esthétique des premiers films du cinéaste ("Fear City", 1984), en cela héritier de John Cassavetes, où de petits malfrats volubiles parcourent les rues interlopes de New York la nuit. En blouson de cuir noir et casquette rose, toujours une bière à la main, l'auteur de "King of New York" (1990) et de "Bad Lieutenant" (1992) multiplie les anecdotes sur ses tournages. Entouré de ses collaborateurs, il se montre incontrôlable et cherche même à réaliser le documentaire dont il est le sujet. Mais lorsqu'il travaille, Ferrara ne rit plus : le voir diriger un clip est une véritable leçon de mise en scène dont l'acteur, ici une chanteuse de R & B, est toujours le centre. Malgré son talent, Ferrara souffre d'un manque de reconnaissance : lorsqu'il tombe sur un article consacré à son "oncle" Jean-Luc Godard, au petit matin dans un coffee shop minable, il a le déplaisir de constater qu'il n'est pas cité parmi les cinéastes qui comptent. Après avoir commenté, en riant jaune, la prestation sexuelle de son ex-compagne Asia Argento avec William Dafoe dans "New Rose Hotel" (1998), Ferrara confie qu'il est sans cesse à la recherche de nouvelles expériences

The Rafi Pitts collection : Sanam ; It's winter ; The hunter by Rafi Pitts( Visual )

"Rafi Pitts is one of the most prominent filmmakers to have emerged from Iranian cinema's new wave ... A vocal political activist who was openly criticised the imprisonment of fellow director Jafar Panahi, his highly cinematic and authentically observed works tell very human stories against the wider background of contemporary Iranian society. "Sanam": since her husband death, Sanam and her son Issa are exposed to an avalanche of problems, which will change the course of their destiny, forcing them to accept a life they never wanted. --"It's winter": a stranger arrives in town in search of work, whose eye is taken by the beautiful young woman, abandoned by her husband a long time ago. The film illuminates the plight of a generation torn between a desire to leave their country yet who are bound by blood to home. --"The hunter": this powerful thriller stars writer/director Rafi Pitts as Ali, a man whose world is shattered when his wife and young daughter go missing. A tense and compelling film set against the background of social unrest in Iran. --Container
