Church of Film presents DUELLE

c-of-f-1

 

Church of Film is a weekly gathering for the reverence and worship of cinema. Our hope is to bring the long lost, forgotten, overlooked, obscure or unavailable to a hungry audience unable to get their fill from the local theater offerings. And in so doing, in the cozy darkness of an elegant vintage Portland ballroom (or vintage theater), we build a like-minded community of the curious and the cine-obsessed. All are welcome, as are your creative suggestions.

Church of Film presents DUELLE

Duelle
Director: 
Jacques Rivette
Country: 
France
Year: 
1976
Runtime: 
121 minutes

Jacques Rivette's noir-infused fantasy follows the Goddess of the Moon (Juliet Berto) and the Goddess of the Sun (Bulle Ogier) as they battle over a mystical jewel that will allow them to remain on Earth for longer than the 40 days of Carnivale. And in the midst of their violent intrigues, several ordinary Parisians are entangled and destroyed. An ambitious follow-up to his Celine & Julie Go Boating, DUELLE remained unreleased and relished in obscurity, while critics and film scholars championed it as a lost masterpiece. A deconstruction of cinema and a warped recreation of Celtic myths with a Feminist twist!
