Simone Barbes or Virtue

December 9, 2022 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Free

New 4K Restoration!

A criminally overlooked work from the post-post–New Wave era of French cinema, Marie-Claude Treilhou’s feature debut assumes the form of a triptych, following leather-clad porno theater usher Simone as she banters with her coworker while watching the eccentric strangers puttering in and out of the cinema’s lobby; then clocks out and heads off to meet her girlfriend, a waitress at a lesbian club; and later, has an encounter with a lonely man on the prowl.

(Marie-Claude Treilhou, France, French W/ Eng Subs, 77 min, 1980, Digital)

cosponsored by the Festival of Films in French and the Queer Curatorial Fund
