The visual artist Clement Cogitore tries to create meetings towards his movies for building some emotions. During the ''Nice 2019, odyssée du cinéma" biennial the National Marc Chagall Museum put at the same lines Marc Chagall and Clement Cogitore art work who both express suffering. Influenced by the surrealism movement, the Jew tradition, the living in Shtetl (villages in Eastern Europe) an Russian tradition the painter Marc Chagall spend happy times during his childhood in Vitebsk but will escape from Russia and Europe until United - States for saving his own life after World War I. Clement Cogitore inspires himself with "Les Indes Galantes" a libretto written in 1735 by Rameau for showing us the Krumb and dance created by the African - Americans for expressing their suffering. The Krumb is a confindetial body art whare dancers fight together in non violent battles owning their specific codes and movies refrring itself to tribal ceremonies.
