On the occasion of the 10th Anniversary of Fashion in Film Festival, in partnership with Lobster Films and MUBI, Purple Television will be previewing 5 never-before-seen newly mastered cut of rushes created in 1964 in preparation for Henri-Georges Clouzot’s unfinished film The Inferno starring Romy Schneider.

These incredible clips display Clouzot’s awe-inspiring kinetic experiments, with a focus especially on actress Romy Schneider performing simple, seductive actions in careful composed and beautifully color-lit mise-en-scene, resulting in a bold marriage between the sartorial and filmic.

Accompanied by a specially commissioned live electronic score by Rollo Smallcombe, featuring a voice-over by Serge Bromberg , the rushes will be shown in a world premiere event The Inferno Unseen for the 10th-anniversary edition of Fashion in Film Festival at the Barbican in London on March 26th 2017.
