Capital Celluloid 2014 - Day 193: Sun Jul 13

The Inner Scar (Garell, 1972): Cine Lumiere, 2pm

This is part of a Philippe Garell season at the Cine Lumiere.

Here is the cinema's introduction to today's screening: A highly experimental film consisting of no more than 23 camera shots, La Cicatrice intĂ©rieure features Pierre ClĂ©menti (nude) and the Andy Warhol superstar Nico (dressed in a loose robe) and a few others, including Philippe Garrel. It resembles nothing so much as one of Warhol’s earlier films, except that it is more episodic. The people, never more than two at a time, move through a variety of landscapes, from glacial to nearly tropical – always in some way deserted. A fascinating and restrained experiment in visual rhetoric.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
