The second edition of CIMCiH, entitled "Chronographies", is as an invitation to reflect on the power of time in front of and behind the camera. Do women filmmakers prefer stories of characters subject to the tyranny of the clock, or do they favor the story of entities released by their relative interpretation of the passing hours? Indeed, we see how the understanding of time as a subjective element allows the filmmakers and their characters, if they wish, to operate in a context emancipated from the real constraints of the ephemeral.

Time behind the screen, however, responds to dynamics of a diverse nature: protocols of production are often impacted by demands that have little to do with creative processes. In film, is time friend or foe? To what extent is gender capable of subverting the rules of the temporal? Through the camera lens, can the Ars longa, vita brevis be glimpsed?
