The first film in the programme will be a surprise full length feature by Angela Schanelec. It is one of Schanelec's rarest films and it follows an elusive protagonist crisscrossing between countries.
Claire Denis: 35 Shots of Rum (35 rhums) (approximate start time: 8:45PM)
A film like a slow dance into the night, this melancholy portrait of a multicultural circle of friends and lovers is Claire Denis’ tribute to Ozu Yasujirō. At its core, the film deals with the impending separation of a widower and his daughter, both on the threshold of a new life. Emotions are expressed through gazes and dances while the characters’ sad silences create a mutual understanding among them. A rare case of a film in which one gets to really know a group of people and is granted the gift of spending precious time with them.
France / Germany 2008, colour, 35mm, 100 min, French with English subtitles. Directed by Claire Denis. With Alex Descas, Mati Diop, Nicole Dogue, Gregoire Colin, Ingrid Caven. Print Source: New Wave Films, UK.
