Marguerite Duras: two Films on Voice & Image

24/02/2015 from 18:45 to 20:30

Marguerite Duras is known best as a pillar of modernist French writing. But she also made distinctive experimental films, notably India Song in 1975, in which she detaches a voiced text from image, an effect that makes for a prayerful, meditative mood. She uses the same process in these two Aurelia Steiner films, blending her words to the images photographed by Pierre Lhomme, casting incantatory spell, in which we experience a state of waking dream.
