Event Details

Regarded in his native France as one of the most indispensable filmmakers of the post-New Wave generation, Philippe Garrel has, over the past 50 years, created an extraordinary body of impassioned, immensely personal work that has gone virtually unseen in North America.

On the heels of major career surveys in New York and Toronto, The Cinematheque presents a select retrospective of Philippe Garrel’s sublime, scandalously underseen cinema. Many of these films have never played Vancouver before; two of the director’s pinnacle avant-garde works, The Virgin’s Bed and The Inner Scar, will screen from newly struck 35mm prints. Alongside the essentials, the series includes the recently unearthed Actua 1, Garrel’s in-the-thick reportage of the May 1968 riots, as well as the Vancouver premiere of his superb new film Lover for a Day, his first to feature daughter Esther (Call Me by Your Name) in a principal role.
