Contemporary Screen + The Artists Cinema

During this summer's Contemporary Screen series of new international releases, you'll also see new short films by five leading international artists. These commissioned projects were made specifically to be screened before feature films--a lost tradition in cinema exhibition. The films have toured movie theaters in Britain, but the Wexner Center screenings mark the North American premieres of most of the shorts.

"Every frame of the movie seems alive: with risk, with pleasure, with a sensuality that is both wild and intelligent."—A. O. Scott, New York Times

Winner of five César Awards (the French Oscars), Lady Chatterley is adapted from an early version of D. H. Lawrence’s once-scandalous novel. The wife of a wealthy, wheelchair-bound mine owner rediscovers the physical and spiritual passion of her life before marriage in an illicit relationship with a taciturn gamekeeper. (168 mins., 35mm)

Bonnie Camplin's Special Afflictions by Roy Harryhozen was inspired by Jack Cardiff’s 1974 film The Mutations and by the classic special effects work of Ray Harryhausen. (5 mins., 35mm)
