Origin Stories: Cattet & Forzani at Quad

Image: "Danger: Diabolik" directed by Mario Bava

Apart from Quentin Tarantino, few writer/directors active in film today have the lifeblood of 1960s and 1970s cinema coursing through their veins as fulsomely as Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani. The longtime partners have harnessed their movie love into moviemaking, scaling delirious peaks with the giallo-channeling features Amer and The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears. Cattet and Forzani go beyond their immaculately designed and captured frames and through the looking glass, displaying deep respect for genres of all stripes while rousingly giving them their own spin. Now, with Let the Corpses Tan—which begins its U.S. theatrical run here at the Quad on August 31st—they have swerved into the fast lane with a crime thriller that has a strong Spaghetti Western flavor. We have invited the pair to program the latest edition of Origin Stories, our ongoing series showcasing personal favorites that have directly influenced a new film. Cattet and Forzani’s playlist will span the globe for a wild ride through seamy side streets and hazardous dusty terrain of vintage grindhouse fare.

With Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani at select screenings.

Let the Corpses Tan opens exclusively at the Quad on August 31st.
