Capital Celluloid 2017 - Day 173: Sat Jun 24

Double Blind [No Sex Last Night] (Calle/Shephard, 1992): Close-Up Cinema, 7.30pm


This screening is part of a two-month programme exploring the road as a state of mind within late 20th Century American and European independent cinema at Close-Up. You can find details of all the movies being screened here.

Close-Up Cinema introduction:
"We hadn't been living together for more than a year, but our relationship had worsened to such an extent that we had stopped talking to one another altogether. I dreamed of marrying him. He dreamed of making movies. To get him to travel across America with me, I suggested that we make a film during the trip. He agreed. Our absence of communication gave us the idea of equipping ourselves with separate cameras, making them the sole confidantes of our respective frustrations and secretly telling them all the things we were unable to say to each other. Having established the rules, on January 3, 1992 we left New York in his silver Cadillac and Headed for California." – Sophie Calle
