'[Sally Shafto on Michel Fournier] Le Révélateur was his favourite, because the film’s miniscule budget forced him to “create something new in almost every shot”.'

    LE RÉVÉLATEUR

    Philippe Garrel France, 1968

    In astonishingly beautiful B&W, Philippe Garrel’s silent experimental narrative film was made in his 20s with the ferocious Zanzibar art collective. Shot near military camps in Germany to create a feeling of oppression, it is a primal response to the events of May ’68 as they were still unfolding.

    THE VIRGIN'S BED

    Philippe Garrel France, 1969

    From Philippe Garrel, a cinematic conflagration and re-invention of Biblical storytelling for a culture and an audience having just passed through the convulsions of May ’68. Unabashedly radical and ambitious, with an epoch-defining cast.

    MARIE FOR MEMORY

    Philippe Garrel France, 1967

    Philippe Garrel was just 20 years old when he made his award-winning first feature, Marie for Memory. Prefiguring the events of May 1968, the film—which Garrel described as “a cobblestone hurled into the cinema”—is a politically incisive study in madness, lost innocence, and personal liberation.
