To close out October, they’ve got exciting releases.
First off, there’s the OVID exclusive, straight from the archives interview with Jaqueline Audry, one of France’s first ground-breaking female filmmakers and the director behind the lesbian cult classic OLIVIA. In this interview, Audry talks about her fascinating “against the grain” career and how she found her path to directing.
Next up is LIGHT YEARS, an intimate portrait of the master Argentine director Lucrecia Martel and an inside look at the making of ZAMA. Vanity Fair hailed the film as a “fearless, piercing piece of work. The movie plays out like a dreamlike stream of indelicate curiosities.”
Jaqueline Audry Interview
Companion to OLIVIA
Interview with Jaqueline Audry (OLIVIA), one of France’s first ground-breaking female filmmakers. In this interview, Audry talks about her fascinating “against the grain” career and how she found her path to directing.
Directed by Manuel Abramovich
An illustration of filmmaking’s many stages — mysterious, delirious, playful, frustrated — and complex artistic collaboration with its subject, Manuel Abramovich’s new film concerns Lucrecia Martel during the making of her fourth feature, Zama.
Light Years far surpasses the familiar form of behind-the-scenes features, proving as much an intimate portrait of the working artist as it does an emulation of Martel’s oblique, transcendental tendencies.
