La Minute vidéo Folie/Culture
Since the year 2000, Folie/Culture has been presenting La Minute vidéo and has been inviting one and all – known and unknown artists, family and friends, members and workers in the social and artistic milieus, – to produce a one-minute video on diverse themes. The participants make a one-minute video using only one-sequence shots, in the form of fiction, essay, or art video. La Minute video seeks to stimulate reflection on the issue of mental health. Through original intervention methods, this project allows Folie/Culture to spread a certain vision of the situation in order to raise awareness of specific social realities in different milieus. The Minutes received are projected publicly, usually at the annual Folie/Culture poetry/performance evening.
