The delirious fictions of William Klein( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in French and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Klein's explosive New York street photography made him one of the most heralded artists of the sixties. An American expatriate in Paris, Klein has also been making challenging cinema for more than forty years, yet with the exception of his acclaimed documentary Muhammad Ali, the Greatest, his film work is barely known in the United States. In his three fiction features -- Who Are You, Polly Maggoo?, Mr. Freedom, and The Model Couple -- he skewers the fashion industry, American empire, and governmental mind control with hilarious, cutting aplomb. Today Klein's politically galvanizing social critiques seem even more acute than the works of the better-known New Wavers. These are colorful, surreal antidotes to all forms of social oppression

Jouée pour la première fois en juin 1666 à Paris, cette pièce s'articule autour de la confrontation de deux caractères, deux regards sur l'humanité. L'un, Alceste à l'humeur noire, exigeant et rigoureux dénonçant la moindre faiblesse humaine. L'autre, Philinte le conciliant, plus bienveillant et indulgent. Ce document n'est pas un film original, mais un enregistrement sans la présence du public, d'une représentation de la pièce mise en scène par Antoine Vitez, au Théâtre de la Porte Saint-Martin
