Querelle, dir. Rainer Werner Fassbinder, West Germany, France 1982, 104 min., English. 18.

‘In Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s final film Querelle (1982), it is always either sunset or dawn, a disorienting, perpetual twilight that is both melodramatic and illicit. Based on Jean Genet’s novel, the film explores the violence of erotic obsession, all set against a claustrophobic backdrop of a strange, artificial world. Adapted versions of the sunset dock adorn the walls of The Red Sun is High frieze along the ICA corridor for my exhibition. The technicolor time of day and surreal architecture serves the otherworldly, impulse-driven plot in which consequences and punishments will wait until tomorrow, if there even is a tomorrow coming at all.’
– Gray Wielebinski 

Screening as a part the exhibition The Red Sun is High, the Blue Low.
