CÉLINE AND JULIE GO BOATING 35mm d. Jacques Rivette, 1974 at ICA (06 AUG 13:00).

“A special 35mm screening co-presented with the London Short Film Festival and Zodiac Film Club as part of their Eye Rituals programme.

Jacques Rivette’s biggest hit is an exhilarating combination of theatricality, paranoia and la vie parisienne, all wrapped up in an extended and entrancing examination of the nature of filmmaking and film-watching.

Céline (Juliet Berto), a magician, and Julie (Dominique Labourier), a librarian, meet in Montmartre and wind up sharing the same flat, bed, fiancé, clothes, identity and imagination. Thanks to a magic sweet, they soon find themselves spectators and then participants in a Henry James-inspired ‘film-within-a-film’ – an unfolding melodrama in a mysterious suburban house populated by the ‘Phantom Ladies Over Paris’ (Bulle Ogier and Marie-France Pisier), a sinister man (Barbet Schroeder) and his child. 

Acknowledged by director Susan Seidelman as a huge influence on Desperately Seeking SusanCéline and Julie Go Boating has a freewheeling, playful spirit that never tires.”
