The crowded streets of New York City turn into fictive, cinematographic scenery. Provost is playing with our collective memory, its cinematic codes and narrative languages, questioning the boundaries between a staged, suggested reality and authentic fiction. Although for the most part filmed with a hidden camera, Plot Point_ presents a highly dramatic construction with overly sophisticated images and a subtle but tangible urge in the soundtrack. The eticulousness with which Provost shoots and edits the images and sounds make Plot Point, the perfect trailer for dramatized experience in our daily life - an ordinary walk on the street will never be the same again.

Nicolas Provost (1969) is a filmmaker and visual artist who has moved back to Brussels after a ten-year stay in Norway. His work is a reflection on the grammar of cinema and the relation between visual art and the cinematic experience, analysing and questioning the phenomenon of cinema, its various elements, its influence and conventional rules. His work intends to walk on the fine line between dualities and balance between the grotesque and the moving, beauty and cruelty, the emotional and the intellectual.
