became very successful films that acquired international
recognition, Pierre Clémenti bought a 16mm camera
and began creating a film journal which included original
material of both films. Similar to the North American
underground cinematographers, which initially influence
his work, Pierre Clémenti reclaims an absolute
liberty of expression, straying from the usual means of
narrating, representing and financing that were regularly
found in the cinema of the time. He learned to handle the
camera, and filmed the delicate flower that is the Paris
underground ; his fellow actors, musicians, directors,
and painters (Jean-Pierre Kalfon, Valérie

and Livret de famille (which together became known
as Visa de censure n°X) are broadcast by an art
gallery (Galerie Givaudan). To create his films
independently he opted to finance the films with his own
funds and turns to his various friends, actors, musicians
such as Jean-Pierre Kalfon. As well good friends of his,
Marie-Laure de Noailles and Gala Dali also financed many
of his projects. Absent from the main stream films, his
are often shown throughout the world at manifestations
devoted to independent cinema.
