Destroy, She Said (Détruire dit-elle)

1969 / 100'
Marguerite Duras Retrospective

Presenting the author at the peak of her powers and in all of the dimensions of her unique film signature, this is Marguerite Duras’ second full-length feature film as a director and is based upon her eponymous novel from the same year. It takes place in a hotel located on the edge of a forest. We watch carefully constructed, static scenes through which – like hypnotised ghosts – male and female protagonists are walking and bumping into each other, and – together with the viewers – asking themselves where the literature ends and the film begins (and vice versa), where love ends and revolution begins (and vice versa).

Direction and screenplay: Marguerite Duras; Language: French with English subtitles. 

Organisation: Slovenska Kinoteka; In collaboration with: City of Women.

With the support of the Slovenian Charles Nodier Institute.
