What’s up in French Edinburgh?!
|Built on fragments of memory, the story of a young girl’s intuitive struggle for survival in the malevolent political and social environment of Haiti under Papa Doc Duvalier in the 1960s. Eight-year-old Sarah’s father is a discredited army officer. He and his wife are forced to flee their small rural town by Janvier, a vicious Tonton Macoute strongman. They leave behind Sarah and her two sisters. The children are entrusted to their grandmother, who risks her life to secure them from Janvier, now bent on revenge and dedicated to the new regime.|
L’Homme sur les quais will be followed by a talk by Rachel Douglas (University of Glasgow) on May 16.
|Marcel L’Herbier’s newly restored experimental masterpiece follows femme fatale opera singer Claire Lescot who tragically discovers what love is.|
Written by L’Herbier and filmed by American artist Man Ray, the silent film classic is accompanied by a new soundtrack composed by Aidje Tafial in 2015. Director: Marcel L’Herbier (France, 1924 – 135 mins – Fiction)
