Philippe Garrel: The Gift of Intimacy

The Gene Siskel Film Center presents Philippe Garrel: The Gift of Intimacy, a series of eight features and two shorts from renowned French New Wave cinematic poet Philippe Garrel. Rarely revived and virtually unseen in the United States throughout most of his career, Garrel's earliest films are making their first break on U.S. shores amidst a flurry of digital restorations and newly struck 35mm prints. The series showcases works from his romantic self-immolating film career, highlighting Garrel's unique styles of sparse dialogue, stark imagery, narrative continuity, and poetic moments of intimacy and alienation.

Son of French actor Maurice Garrel and disciple of Jean-Luc Godard, Philippe Garrel's film career experienced early success. From the student uprising of May 1968 in France, to sharing a home with famed artist and filmmaker Andy Warhol, to his romantic relationship with singer Nico, and to later starting a family of his own, Garrel's work largely reflects these periods of his life, creating avant-garde, transposed autobiographical films.
