About This Screening

I approach cinema with the intention to murder it.
Marguerite Duras

Best known for her autobiographical novel The Lover and her cinematic collaboration with Alain Resnais, Hiroshima Mon Amour, Marguerite Duras was one of the most prolific and controversial figures in post-war France. Between 1943 and 1995, Duras penned more than 70 literary works and directed 19 films. These lesser known works in cinema make up a body of daring experimental narratives that address feminism, class, and politics. In cooperation with the San Francisco Cinematheque and the Ministère des Affaires Etrangères, Cinema Project is pleased to present three of Duras' wonderfully complex films (including a new print of Duras' masterwork India Song) along with Dominique Auvray¹s recent documentary on Duras.
