Cursed be the Wednesday!
7:10 This morning we started off our show with Emmett Walsh and Roman Martyn discussing their film Maudit Soit Le Jour.
“In a timeless world, Raoul enters the city, goes to a cinema and meets Rosa. Together they decide to make a movie. But Bob Daniels, a powerful industrialist, has taken control of the city and is keen on protecting his interests. The Japanese arrive and rearm, the revolutionaries act and videomaniacs are deployed by Daniels to keep people under surveillance. From the city to the countryside, encounter after encounter, the couple will be subjected to monumental decisions that will determine the fate of their relationship and the future of cinema.”
The screening will be March 4 at the NFB cinema robotheque.
