Featured Screening: The Shiver of Vampires at Film Society of Lincoln Center
Rendez-Vous with French Cinema is one of New York Film’s biggest annual to-do’s, a city-wide, multi-venue celebration of recent Francophone cinema studded with generous guest appearances. Related programming also spotlights occasional revivals and restorations, as is the case with a new DCP showing of Jean Grémillon‘s Lumière d’été and today’s featured screening, quintessential eurosleaze pioneer Jean Rollin‘s The Shiver of Vampires, which will be projected from 35mm at Film Society of Lincoln Center.
What water lilies are to Monet, such are lesbians, vampires, lesbian vampires and zombies in the cinema of Jean Rollin, whose works include titles such as The Rape of the Vampire, The Nude Vampire, and Requiem for a Vampire. He is, perhaps along with Tino Brass, the most notoriously talented artist to have found asylum for his singular sensibilities in the economics of exploitation filmmaking. His frequently glacial-paced, dreamlike films speak at some length to a vision of pure cinema. There are some affinities with Georges Franju in that both artists engage with with the silent cinema; each crafted fantastical, surreal adaptations of the Louis Feuillade’s 1916 Judex serials, but whereas Franju crafted a more traditionally loving tribute condensing the work to suit brisk, contemporary feature narrative standards, Rollin’s approach is more contemplative while headily indulging contemporary psychedelia and sexuality. Shiver of the Vampires was apparently his most financially successful film, and its one of his most characteristic—a honeymooning couple stops for a night in an eerie castle, and logic and comprehensibility go the way of the lesbian vampire hostesses’ loins.
