IN THE CINÉMA CLUB OF…
Chloë Sevigny is one of American independent cinema’s most iconic figures, an Oscar-nominated and Golden Globe-winning actress known for her brilliant performances in the work of auteurs like Korine, Stillman, Assayas and Fincher while also maintaining parallel careers as a designer, model and filmmaker. Her third directorial short, White Echo, and Jim Jarmusch’s The Dead Don’t Die, in which she stars, both premiered at Cannes this year.
DEPECHE MODE: 101, David Dawkins, Chris Hegedus & D. A. Pennebaker, 1989
For fans and about the fans, in a perfect cocktail.
A VERY CURIOUS GIRL, Nelly Kaplan, 1969
Feminist call to arms. Punk as fuck. Perfectly described by writer-director Nelly Kaplan as about “a witch who doesn’t let herself be burned.”
RED-HEADED WOMAN, Jack Conway, 1932
A pre-code Jean Harlow unabashedly plowing through men, in dresses cut to kill by Adrian.
OVER THE EDGE, Jonathan Kaplan, USA, 1979
’70s Americana, teen suburban angst, all buttery. Sexiest pick-up scene cut to “You Really Got Me”.
THE MAGDALENE SISTERS, Peter Mullan, 2002
An unsentimental handling of a small portion of the atrocities the Catholic Church raged on Ireland.
