Rare screening of the experimental film by Isidore Isou, pioneer of Lettrisme, which paved the way for the Situationists. Rejecting film conventions by 'chiselling' away at them, Isou introduced several new concepts, including discrepancy cinema where the soundtrack has nothing to do with the visual track. Traité de Bave et d'Éternité (Venom & Eternity) was described by Stan Brakhage as the "portal through which every film artist is going to have to pass."
Dir Isidore Isou, France, 1951, 120 mins
