Author(s): Raul Ruiz
In search of new narrative modes in artists' practices, the "Fictions" collection is a space dedicated to the writings of film directors. The point is to show how those writings, playing on the ruptures and mutations of the story by turning upside down our codes of representation, epitomize the contemporary imaginary expressed in them. Both a prelude and a continuation to Raoul RuizÃ¢ s film, Treasure Island, made in 1984, this text presents itself as the follow up, or rather, a pursuit of StevensonÃ¢ s novel. A formidable example of the way Ruiz parodies the text and plunges the story inside the story, before losing the reader in a labyrinth of strange images.
