Yvan Lagrange’s Tristan and Isolde will screen on May 26 and June 4 at Anthology Film Archives, as part of the Middle Ages on Film series.

In French with projected English subtitles, 1972, 60 min, 16mm

Lagrange’s Tristan and Isolde cannot precisely be described as narrative. Episodes from the story of the doomed lovers are evoked though “images of violence and explicit eroticism.” Only Isolde speaks; the rest of the story is told through visual sequences that sometimes draw on medieval iconography, representing “the naked myth set beyond anecdotal tradition” (Jean Marcel, “Le Dernière métamorphose de Tristan: Yvan Lagrange”).
