FUN AND GAMES FOR EVERYONE

“One of the major revelations to emerge from the resurgence of the Zanzibar films is Bard's FUN AND GAMES FOR EVERYONE, a velveteen, chiaroscuro boogie-woogie chess match of a film, which documents a vernissage for an Olivier Mosset exhibition. The new print practically drips inky blacks and blinding whites as art circle dandies dissolve in and out of view, as if melting into the background and morphing into a Mosset diachromatic tableau.”

– Andréa Picard, Cinema Scope 

FUN AND GAMES (FOR EVERYONE): a pitch black and milky white film shot during one of Olivier Mosset's exhibition openings. A psychedelic game of improvisation joins the Zanzibar group with Salvador Dalí, Barbet Schroeder and Jean Mascolo... the solarized image reminiscent of thick strokes of a paintbrush.”

– Philippe Azoury

"Bard, in this second film, again leaves the field open to an incessant coming and going of Parisians attending the opening of the minimalist painter Olivier Mosset and whose exhibition consisted of 10 paintings, all alike: white with black circles painted in their center. It's the revolution criticizing art and painting... and Serge criticizing cinema!"

– Jackie Raynal

"Light can become volumeless graphic expression and dehumanize the actors until their faces are 'absorbed' erasing all detail and creating an attractive environment."

–  Henri Alekan, cinematographer, commenting on FUN AND GAMES

"I had nothing to do with the film, it just was filmed at my exhibition."
