I had to decide whether to find somebody else or to try and shoot by myself. My assistant cameraman encouraged me. So I tried and liked it very much. I am not a technician and it is important for me to have someone to help with lighting, focus pulling, lenses. To me, framing is very important but I am not interested in the technical detail. So he was his own cameraman for the filming of what is probably his favourite film, Every Little Thing (1996). This is, he says the story of a film crew and the people who live and work in the psychiatric clinic, La Borde, in the Cour Cheverny region of the Loire Valley.
They told me I had to confront myself also. Some of the inmates there told me, ‘Do not be afraid, you cannot manipulate us. ’ This was a challenge Philibert could not resist. He makes an important distinction between cinema and television and points out that documentary is often a television form and has journalistic origins. So it has to be ‘about something’. He prefers to work for the cinema, where you can get beyond ‘the subject’ and the film becomes something more ‘complex, a metaphor, or a poem, or a philosophy.
For most scenes I had one version. For some scenes I had two other versions. Just a few. Mostly I had one. We discussed the popular argument that digital technology is often responsible for the indecision demonstrated by many documentarists these days, an argument with which I fundamentally disagree. Shooting on DV, I am told, film-makers often shoot in an undisciplined way, with far too much footage. Then in editing, they are indecisive, because they can change their minds as often as they like without damaging the original stock.
