Strange Desire: The Films of Claire Denis

Series Site

One of a handful of filmmakers who can credibly lay claim to the title of World’s Greatest Living Director, Claire Denis creates films that speak as much through words as they do through movement, rhythm, and texture. Profound and empathetic studies of outsiderhood, immigrant alienation, the ravages of colonialism, and the mysteries of love and desire, her films are not so much watched as experienced in a full-sensory head-rush of sound and image. In anticipation of her latest philosophical reverie and first English language feature, High Life, BAM proudly presents the largest US retrospective ever of this singular cinematic mood-maker.
