Simone Barbès ou la vertu

No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Marie-Claude Treilhou, Marie-Claude Treilhou
1980 / 77min / DCP

Marie-Claude Treilhou’s debut is an unforgettable journey to the end of the night constructed from three bravura extended sequences: our protagonist’s gig as an usher at a porno theater, her visit to a lesbian nightclub straight out of von Sternberg, and a ride home in the car of a suspiciously mustachioed stranger. Produced and edited by Paul Vecchiali, who would have Ingrid Bourgoin reprise her role as Barbès in his C’est la vie! later that same year, adding a fascinating intertextuality to the greater Diagonale project.

Introduction from series curators Bingham Bryant and Graham Carter on Friday, September 1st at 9pm and Sunday, September 3rd at 7:15pm
