Louis Malle's BLACK MOON
Louis Malle's BLACK MOON
Dir. Louis Malle, 1975
An apocalyptic Alice in Wonderland!

Louis Malle meets Lewis Carroll in this bizarre and bewitching trip down the rabbit hole. After skirting the horrors of a mysterious war being waged in the countryside, beautiful young Lily (Cathryn Harrison) takes refuge in a remote farmhouse, where she becomes embroiled in the surreal domestic life of an extremely unconventional family. Evocatively shot by cinematographer Sven Nykvist, Black Moon is a Freudian tale of adolescent sexuality set in a postapocalyptic world of shifting identities and talking animals. It is one of Malle’s most experimental films and a cinematic daydream like no other.
- Criterion Collection

Malle himself has said about this film: "Opaque, sometimes clumsy, it is the most intimate of my films. I see it as a strange voyage to the limits of the medium, or maybe my own limits."

La Collectionneuse — she who collects — is the hostess of a cinematic salon for lovers of French and international film and culture. Every month, La Collectionneuse reaches deep into her stash of cinéma— from rare shorts and scopitones to feature film discoveries, from challenging experimentation to lovable classics— followed, as always, by drinks and conversations.

In the past, La Collectionneuse has hosted a cycle of films by Jacques Rivette at the Bob Baker theater, an outdoor screening of Truffaut’s Jules et Jim at Barnsdall Art Park, with wines from Silverlake Wine and live music by Tortoise, Le Magnifique intro-ed by none other than Jacqueline Bisset, a showcase of Rohmer’s 6 Moral Tales, and a month-long curated retrospective of Olivier Assayas, with Assayas in house for Q&As and presentations. Her screenings are usually followed by public conversations with artists— Assayas, Bisset, Jackie Raynal, Kim Gordon, Bruno Dumont, and Roxane Mesquida— as well as music and art, such as accordionist Andy Favre or Dosshaus’ unforgettable installation for Innocence.
For when La Collectionneuse collects, she gathers together not only her favorite films, but her favorite people.
