  • Pierre Clémenti: The Revolution Is Only the Beginning

    By on

    As an actor, Pierre Clémenti became a post-new Wave icon through Luis Buñuel's Belle de jour (1967). Clémenti's role as a jealous gangster obsessed with the protagonist (Catherine Deneuve) was fascinating because of its fusion of angelic beauty with bottomless, headstrong energy, the trademark of his exceptional talent. His often uncommercial but ambitious choice of roles brought him together with many master directors from around the world: Luchino Visconti, Bernardo Bertolucci, Philippe Garrel, Liliana Cavani, Jacques Rivette, and more.

    By on

    An evening of real-time cartographic improvisations using projected, manipulated digital maps by Eric Theise, directed and accompanied by genre-trampling oboist Kyle Bruckmann. Expect a visual wash of street grids, land masses, bodies of water, and curiosities from the built environment. Saturated colors and subtle tints. Sounds symphonic and screeching.

  • Imageless Films: Maya

    By on
