Blood red

"The sky is only blue by convention, but red in reality." -Alberto Giacometti

In September LaCinetek lauds the colour red. 

This month's Selection of films features this primordial colour, its pictorial intensity and symbolic richness, in a palette of pop, baroque and flamboyant films. 

The incandescence is also based on the actors' incarnation, associating the filmmakers' formal research with the sacred fire of acting (Irène Jacob and Jean-Louis Trintignant in Kieślowski's films; Karina and Belmondo in Godard's; quartets of sumptuous actors in Resnais' and Coppola's films...). 

A selection to pigment the autumn, in bloody and tawny tones, carmine and vermeil.
