Church of Film says
FREE. Wednesday, April 8th. Part One, 8pm. Part Two, 9pm (after intermission). France's avant-garde Feminist pioneer, one of the first women to direct films, Queen of les bohèmes: Germaine Dulac! Obscured in cinema history, Dulac was a fixture of Paris's radical, liberated avant-garde scene, rubbing elbows with the likes of Artaud and making Surrealist films that broke ground even before Bunuel & Dali. Founder of a feminist journal, a theorist, a thinker, and a critic, she forged new ground in every territory. Part One features a selection of Dulac's Pure Cinema shorts, including DISQUE 957, THEMES & VARIATIONS, and one her crowning achievements, THE SMILING MADAME BEUDET. Part Two features her more legendary piece, THE SEASHELL & THE CLERGYMAN, a collaboration with writer Antonin Artaud that caused a riot in Paris and prefigures Un Chien Andalou in its striking, strange, at times beatiful at time grotesque imagery. Our program ends with her art-deco drunken dream, INVITATION TO A VOYAGE. Bon voyage! At the North Star Ballroom.
