Ou (1996)

Scroll to content

In a sequence lasting twenty seconds, a girl slowly pulls up her Mickey Mouse t-shirt. The rest of the film comprises the credits, which last more than six minutes. Ou, which means ‘or’ in French, attempts to trace a network of events, listing every participant from the most obvious (director, producer, make-up artist) to situations, encounters, quotes, friends, writers, and vague ideas that directly or indirectly brought this film into existence. Ou came about through a set of relations: a vast terrain of heterogeneous actants which collided to produce an image.
