Kristina Talking Pictures
Institute of Contemporary Arts
A couple lie in their bed together, staring down the camera. They're surrounded by photos of faces, eyes, people in their lives
Kristina Talking Pictures, dir. Yvonne Rainer, USA 1976, 90 min., English.

Namechecking both Virginia Woolf and Jean-Luc Godard in the film’s opening segment, Rainer continues to experiment in her elegiac, hybrid third feature with unshackling narrative from conventional representation, using the paradoxical feminine figure of a lion tamer, Kristina (played by several women, including Rainer herself), and a disjunctive audiovisual syntax that pushes avant-garde film grammar into thrillingly novel, expressive realms.

This is the UK Premiere of the 4K restoration of the work.
