DELPHINE ET CAROLE : INSOUMUSES
Information on the activity
October 12, 2019 to October 18, 2019
Delphine Seyrig (1932–1990), the actress who embodied intello-chic in films by Demy, Truffaut, Buñuel and Resnais, was deeply committed to women’s cinema, from Chantal Akerman to Liliane de Kermadec and Marguerite Duras. Militant filmmaker Carole Roussopoulos (1945–2009) was a pivotal figure in French political documentary. Together they founded the women’s video collective Insoumuses. Armed with their small, lightweight camera, they documented every feminist struggle of the 70s: the legalization of abortion, free contraception, sexual minority rights... battles that are striking in their blistering topicality. An exhilarating documentary that reflects the extraordinary passion and energy of its two subjects.
