J'ENTENDS PLUS LA GUITARE
DIRECTOR: PHILIPPE GARREL
CAST: BENOîT RéGENT, JOHANNA TER STEEGE, YANN COLLETTE, MIREILLE PERRIER
Philippe Garrel in person to introduce and for a Q&A following the 6pm screening on Friday, October 13.
Completed in the aftermath of Nico’s sudden death in 1988, J’entends plus la guitare is Garrel’s tribute to the relationship that so profoundly marked him and his art. Johanna ter Steege is the stand-in for Nico; Benoît Régent is the Garrel substitute; and we see them through happiness/dependence, heroin-fueled breakdowns, and the building of independent lives. “We were what we were, and now we are not, and that’s that.” Olivier Assayas: “…about surviving youth, surviving in an age where everything you stood for, believed in, dreamed of, has been crushed.”
J'entends plus la guitare screens as part of the series Philippe Garrel: Part 1.
