CULT EPICS INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN FOR “SYLVIA KRISTEL: FROM EMMANUELLE TO CHABROL

Thursday 4th March 2021 - posted by Eric_Cotenas

A trailblazing figure in film and popular culture, Netherlands’ native Sylvia Kristel became one of the biggest stars in the world as Emmanuelle in 1974. Alongside her most famous role that was directed by Just Jaeckin, a little-known fact is that Sylvia Kristel also appeared in over 20 films between 1973 and 1982 featuring remarkable work with some of the greatest directors in film history including Walerian Borowczyk, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Roger Vadim, and Claude Chabrol. Now the story of Sylvia’s astonishing career in the seventies is told in Sylvia Kristel: From Emmanuelle to Chabrol. Featuring new interviews with Just Jaeckin, Pim de la Parra, Robert Fraisse, Joe Dallesandro, and Francis Lai amongst others. Sylvia Kristel: From Emmanuelle to Chabrol is a film-by-film guide to one of the most distinctive and uncompromising careers in modern cinema and a celebration of a most remarkable woman in a 352-page hardcover coffee-table book written by author Jeremy Richey, edited by Cult Epics' Nico B. and fully-illustrated with over 200 images.

A homage to Dutch movie star Sylvia Kristel, to be released as a Hardcover book written by Jeremy Richey, and produced by Cult Epics. Cult Epics needs your support at the INDIEGOGO Campaign to get this book printed.

TRISKEL RECOMMENDS 25 – 31 MAY - PASSION: A BRIAN DE PALMA THRILLER

Wednesday 27th May 2020 - posted by Eric_Cotenas

Welcome to the sixth edition of ‘Triskel Recommends’, a weekly series in which we recommend films available to stream online.

With Triskel Arts Centre unable to screen movies as a collective experience and people staying at home in self-isolation, we’ve decided to highlight quality films which we think our patrons would enjoy.

Each week we mix movies to rent and movies which are free to view, international and national cinema, all kinds of genres (shorts, documentaries, experimental, B-movies, foreign language), and links to streaming sites and content that we will curate ourselves.

This week, we are highlighting Passion (2012), the much-maligned Brian De Palma thriller that received its one and only ever Irish theatrical screening at Triskel Arts Centre back in July 2013. De Palma has always been a decisive figure in American cinema, his overtly stylised and cinematic approach to filmmaking (as well as his depictions of violence and sexuality) has confounded many critics and caused much controversy. With Passion, even his most strident supporters have been divided, but those willing to indulge in the unconventional approach to filmmaking and storytelling may find this to be a hidden gem, an intentionally ripe melodrama reminiscent of classic Hollywood pictures from the 1940s and ’50s filtered through De Palma’s unique approach to the subject matter.

Around the time of the Passion screening at Triskel, Chris O'Neill wrote an essay entitled ‘Passion: A Viewers’ Guide’, which was published in the much-missed Experimental Conversations, an online publication run by Cork Film Centre. I have republished that essay below, but please view the film before reading.

Passion is currently available to view on MUBI UK & Ireland, who have very generously given Triskel Cinema members a free 90-day subscription to their services. Cinema members should check their inboxes for the link to take advantage of this offer. Not already a member? Then sign up here. We’re extending our membership so you’ll now get 15 months for just €15.
