“The Inferno” (clip 4) never-before-seen screen tests starring Romy Schneider

“The Inferno” (clip 4) never-before-seen screen tests starring Romy Schneider by Henri-Georges Clouzot

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.

The Fashion in Film Festival 2017, made in collaboration with Lobster and MUBI, runs from March 10th – March 22nd 2017.  Discover the full Fashion in Film Festival 2017 program here.
