College – middle school to us in the UK – Barbara, is in St Denis, north of Paris. Here are two sets of Meteo clips: Exercise 2 ‘Sensations’ of weather – some fixed Lumiere-style shots out of upper floor windows – with views of windy weather, and close-ups of rain.
And Exercise 3, filmed twice, as ‘autumn wind’ and ‘bruine d’hiver’ – ‘brunette in winter’? We noticed when these two pieces were shown in Paris how powerful, and unusual, it is to see shots of people framed at medium close-up, and how the weather in the second one changes our emotional response to the girl when she’s left alone. They’re like two tiny short stories.
