The key book about French production company Anna Sanders Films.
The In-Between, the key book about French production company Anna Sanders Films, is now available. This company has blazed a trail for a new breed of cinema – one that is made by visual artists and shown most often in galleries, but increasingly is finding its way into cinemas and film festivals.
Anna Sanders’ films share a general fascination with Asia, exploring place and its relationship to personal narratives. Stunning, often sensual, imagery combine with simple cinema making. Retaining a cool distance form their subjects, the filmmakers create a space for the viewer to become immersed in the beauty of images and their meaning.

Anna Sanders is an in-between : she is the link between the films she produces and between many artists. Her presence is that of a ghost. Her roots are in visuals art but she evolves in the cinematic field. She makes art but does not make objects.

Created by Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Pierre Huyghe, Charles de Meaux et Philippe Parreno, Xavier Douroux and Franck Gautherot, Anna Sanders is only defined by her status as a film producer - registred at the National Centre for Cinematography in Paris - and by the films she produces.

The films of Anna Sanders take us on journeys : journeys to Pamir, central Asia, Hong Kong, Copacabana, Iceland - journeys through the history of cinema, mental journeys, journeys between the imaginated and the real.

Anna Sanders lies in this in-between, in-between economies, in-between realities, in-between dreams, in-between fictions, in-between cinemas.
