If Virgil Vernier’s name is often associated with the words avant-garde or the revival of French cinema, it must be because his work reflects on the form and the direction cinema is heading. Vernier studied at the Beaux-Arts de Paris. Directors such as Pasolini, Godard, Wiseman — filmmakers that have, in their time, redefined the way we tell stories in cinema — inspired him to make films. Vega, shot in 16 mm, is Vernier’s shortest film and a perfect representation of his work that has been so talked about in France in the past few years. In this film, the filmmaker erases the line between documentary and fiction. Reality isn’t just a source of inspiration for Vernier – it’s his raw material.
