DEATH WATCH
1980, Westchester Films, 117 min, United States, Dir: Bertrand Tavernier

Shot in Glasgow, Scotland, this unsettling drama takes place in a future where fatal illness is as rare as voyeurism is rampant. Besieged by reporters after she has been diagnosed with an incurable disease, Romy Schneider takes off with acquaintance Harvey Keitel - unaware that a camera has been implanted in his eye to film her final days for a reality show. With Harry Dean Stanton (as a ratings-hungry TV exec) and Max von Sydow.


HENRI-GEORGES CLOUZOT’S INFERNO
2009, Flicker Alley, 94 min, France, Dir: Henri-Georges Clouzot, Serge Bromberg, Ruxandra Medrea

Among the most legendary unfinished films in world cinema, INFERNO was extinguished after three weeks of shooting in 1964, leaving behind 15 hours of stunning imagery unseen until now. Noted preservationist Serge Bromberg and co-director Ruxandra Medrea have reconstructed Henri-Georges Clouzot’s tale of all-consuming jealousy starring Romy Schneider and Serge Reggiani, bridging gaps with interviews, storyboards and re-enactments. The resulting hybrid of documentary and narrative film is a hypnotic look at the intersection of madness and creativity. In French with English subtitles.
