CAST: EMMANUELLE RIVA, MAURICE GARREL, CHRISTINE BOISSON, LáSZLó SZABó, BRIGITTE SY

Philippe Garrel in person to introduce and for a Q&A following the 7pm screening on Thursday, October 12.

Garrel’s tribute to his parents and the supporters of the FLN in their struggle for Algerian liberation, again with his father Maurice, and László Szabó, Emmanuelle Riva and wife Brigitte Sy. Time is slowed to observe determined hands in craft, and finally to slow-motion, to inflict the full horror of violence. “Mine is the cinema of the left—if I refused to join the army, if I have contempt for the various means of amassing money, it’s thanks to a few people I knew in my childhood, who lived in conditions of poverty, but who were kings.”—Philippe Garrel

Liberté, la nuit screens as part of the series Philippe Garrel: Part 1.
