1930. France. Dir: Jean Cocteau. With Enrique Rivero, Elizabeth Lee Miller. 55 min.
Cocteau’s loose, surrealistic adaptation of the Orpheus myth meditates on the source of creativity and its inextricable link to destruction. This landmark of avant-garde filmmaking takes the form of a cinematic poem, invoking haunting imagery that continues to resonate with the passing of time. With the anarchic Daffy Duck cartoon “Duck Amuck” – because why not?
DATE: Tonight, September 18th
PLACE: CFS, Goldsmith Family Cinema
