The Story of Marie and Julien
Films fresh from the international film festival circuit, area premieres, award winners, and recent audience favorites.... You'll find films you won't see anywhere else in central Ohio on the Contemporary Screen schedule.
Now in his fifth decade of filmmaking, New Wave legend Jacques Rivette continues to create rigorously inventive cinema. His latest is The Story of Marie and Julien.
The Story of Marie and Julien is the mysterious story of an aimless man trapped in an unusual triangle with two women, one whom he is blackmailing and one with whom he is sexually obsessed. Starring Emmanuelle Beart and Jerzy Radziwilowicz, Marie and Julien was to have starred Leslie Caron and Albert Finney in the 1970s, but Rivette abandoned the project two days into shooting, only to return to it nearly 20 years later. (150 mins.)
The 2004ñ05 film/video season is presented with support from the Rohauer Collection Foundation and the Corporate Annual Fund of the Wexner Center Foundation.
Contemporary films, international films, and visiting filmmakers are presented with support from the Ohio Arts Council.
