OUT 1: SPECTRE
The shortened version is still four and a half hours long, a document of upheaval and an artistic dream, full of history and mythology: Jacques Rivette‘s OUT 1: SPECTRE is the condensed version of his 13-hour magnum opus OUT 1: NOLI ME TANGERE about 1960s Paris, about two theater ensembles tackling Aischylos, each in their own way, and a young man led on the trail of a secret society by anonymous notes. A wild, evocative piece of cinematic art, one of the most remarkable works of the Nouvelle Vague, fully improvised, unparalleled in its spontaneity and pioneering curiosity. Along with the German premiere of the restored version, FILMFEST MÜNCHEN is screening the doc LES MYSTÈRES DE PARIS: “OUT 1” DE JACQUES RIVETTE REVISITÉ.
