MINISTÉRIO DA CIDADANIA, GOVERNO DO PARANÁ E COPEL presents

Synopsis

One of the first filmmakers to claim the status of auteur in world cinema, the feminist artist and theorist Germaine Dulac made her career upon a radical aesthetic experimentation. From her admirable filmography of impressions and sensations, the section will screen restored copies of her medium-length films: ‘Danses Espagnoles’ (1928), a visual study of two flamenco performances; ‘Celles Qui s'en Font’ (1928), a sensitive look at the loneliness of a woman adrift; and the medium-length film ‘La Cigarette’ (1919), with a young protagonist whose husband suspects he is the victim of adultery.

Direction

Germaine Dulac The Frenchwoman Germaine Dulac (1882-1942) operated in the transition between silent and sound cinema playing a pioneering role in the evolution of cinema as an artistic language and social practice. She was a key figure for the avant-gardes of the 1920s, attentive to the plastic qualities inherent to the cinematographic medium in films that she called “integrals”.
