Filmvertoning La Collectionneuse
On the occasion of the last day of the exhibition The Cell That Doesn't Believe In The Mind That It's Part Of, Marres shows a screening of the film La Collectionneuse van Éric Rohmer.
Éric Rohmer (1920) is seen as one of the greatest French filmmakers. From the start of his career he broke with the conventions of traditional Hollywood cinema and stood at the cradle of the famous Nouvelle Vague.
La Collectioneusse is the fourth part of ‘contes moraux’, a series of moral tales in which Rohmer places a character in a situation that forces him to reflect on his or her emotional state of being and notions such as the freedom of choice. Starting point is usually an unexpected encounter with other characters. An important element in Rohmers oeuvre is amorous or erotic doubt. It is about feelings of love, tension and sensuality, contrasted with an enlightened ratio that introduces doubts, protective barriers and the illusion of certainty.
La Collectioneusse (89 min.) tells the story of Haydee, who collects men in Saint Tropez, until two men try to prove the superiority of the intellect above instincts.
Screening: Sunday, September 12 at 15:00 pm. Free entrance.
