Realizer of several feature films between documentary and fiction, sorry Rome (1996), Lessons of darkness (2000), Good news (2001), My Voyage from Winter (2002), Fragments on the Grace (2006) or Despues of the revolucion (2007), he is also active member of the Pointligneplan collective, which has worked for several years for the defense of a “third cinema”, between cinema and contemporary art, far away from the commercial injunctions of formats and kinds.
At the top of his art and his literary cinema and melancholic person, Vincent Dieutre explores with “Bologna power station” the traces of Italy of the “years of lead”, after the attack neofascist against the station of Bologna during the Eighties, intermingling the political history with his fictionalized autobiography, lost loves, sexual meetings, newspaper of the feelings, urban and rough poetry of the Italian city.
“A new page of the diary of the author Vincent Dieutre, torn off in Italy, collective disillusions and the time which passes. Bologna Centrale is also a history of love which badly finished. A homage to all these fellow travellers whose revolt was completed by contemptible disappearances, and to the first of them, Sandro, which was also the man, inconsolably cherished, of the first kiss, the awakening of a sensuality and a taste of the subversion which the system ended up digesting. ”
“Thus “Bologna Centrale (the film)” left the workshop of the secrecy to become manifest of a free cinema of any crenel, of very forced; a third-film torn off with the intermittency, the official auteurism; but also an unstable chapter of my life of cinema torn off with the Berlusconien blindness, my perforated memory, the amnesic violence of the Empire. ” Vincent Dieutre
