Le film Cemetery propose une immersion sensorielle autour du dernier voyage d'un éléphant aux confins de la jungle sri-lankaise, entre documentaire animiste, film d'aventure et cinéma expérimental. Cet ouvrage rassemble une sélection de matériaux visuels et de documents accumulés sur les 10 ans du développement du film de Carlos Casas, dévoilant le processus de recherche de l'artiste.

Présentant une sélection de documents, des premières recherches d'archives à la photographie des lieux, des dessins et diagrammes aux collages, des films aux planches d'archives, le livre met en lumière les étapes du développement de Cemetery, entre 2009 et 2019. Inspiré et basé sur le mythe du cimetière des éléphants, le film questionne non seulement notre idée de la nature et la signification du mythe mais aussi la capacité du cinéma à nous émouvoir, à nous affecter et à nous façonner, à travers une expérience sensorielle complexe qui abolit les frontières entre art, film et documentaire, mais aussi entre les espèces.

Carlos Casas (né en 1974 à Barcelone) est un réalisateur et artiste espagnol dont l'œuvre englobe film documentaire, cinéma, son et arts visuels. Ses films ont été montrés et récompensés dans le monde entier.

Cemetery. Journeys to the Elephant Graveyard and Beyond compiles a selection of the visual and research materials accumulated during the development of the film and project Cemetery (2009–2019).

This book presents the artist's research process from early archival investigations to location photography, from drawings and diagrams to collages, from archive films to archive boards, shedding light on the early stages of the development of Cemetery. Inspired by and based on the elephant graveyard myth, the film questions not only our idea of nature and the meaning of the myth but also the ability of cinema to move us, to affect us and to shape us. “It combines images with sound and vibrations to induce new corporeal modes of interspecies relationship.” The film “creates a complex sensorial experience that collapses the boundaries between art, nature documentary and adventure film.”

Carlos Casas (born 1974 in Barcelona) is a Spanish filmmaker and artist whose practice encompasses documentary film, cinema, sound and the visual arts.
