Selections from Bertrand Bonello, Résonances
April 29 - May 31
These selections from Bertrand Bonello's recent exhibition at the Centre Pompidou in Paris will offer audiences a glimpse at the full breadth of Bonello’s transfixing work in other media and are presented in conjunction with our retrospective I Put a Spell on You: The Films of Bertrand Bonello.
Among the works will be a single-screen version of the installation “Remix,” which reworks Bonello’s films House of Pleasures, Something Organic, On War, Ingrid Caven: Music and Voice, Cindy: The Doll Is Mine, Tiresia, and The Pornographer by crafting a new soundtrack to accompany a seven-part simultaneous split-screen comprised of footage from the aforementioned films. “Remix” will be presented in the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center’s Amphitheater.
On display in the Frieda and Roy Furman Gallery in the lobby of the Walter Reade Theater will be "Films Fantômes" and "Autumn Mists." "Films Fantômes" combines two sequences of silent images from unrealized projects—rushes from Madeleine d’entre les morts (a reworking of Hitchcock’s Vertigo, starring Alex Descas and Isild le Besco) and images from The Death of Laurie Markovitch as well as screen tests of actress Kate Moran—with Bonello reading a text explaining his theory of "ghost films" in between the two sets. "Autumn Mists" consists of four versions of Dimitri Kirsanoff’s Brumes d’automne, its images left intact but with four new scores by the musicians Paul Devred, Richie Hawtin, Diana Soh, and Bonello, yielding four radically distinct audiovisual experiences.
Special thanks to the Centre Pompidou, Mixage – Mathieu Farnarier, and Commande Ircam-Centre Pompidou.

The Prophecy, by Fabrice Monteiro, is a series of hypnotic, environmental-themed photographs that represent the intersection of art, fashion, mythology, and nature. Based in Dakar, the Beninese-Belgian photographer collaborated with a collective of young artists to depict some of Senegal’s worst-hit areas in order to raise awareness of environmental concerns. The Prophecy digital exhibit will highlight stills from the series, and how Monteiro and his team created each image. Marcia Juzga’s short film of the same name will also screen during the festival.
The Prophecy will be on display in the Amphitheater of the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center throughout the 22nd New York African Film Festival.
