“I am very tired – Je suis très fatigué” (00:04:59) by Juan Carlos García-Sampedro Ferrero, Spain, 2023

“I am very tired – Je suis très fatigué” is a tribute to one of the most unclassifiable films in the history of cinema “Last year at Marienbad” (L’Année dernière à Marienbad) a 1961 film by Alain Resnais. An enigmatic film of pure experimental cinema that even today, more than 60 years later, continues to be avant-garde cinema.

This video-creation aims to be faithful to the essence of the original film, recreating mystery, paradox and tragedy. A formal and aesthetic stylization that delves into the most transgressive aspects of Renais’ film that, being coherent with its aesthetics and formal aspects, gives another turn of the screw in a cinematographic abstraction, taking it towards the most conceptual video art.
