DELPHINE AND CAROLE
FRENCH, HEBREW & ENGLISH SUBTITLES
Director: Callisto Mc Nulty
They may not have been born feminists, but ever since their chance meeting, they had no choice but to devote themselves to activism, using the one medium they both knew well: film. Delphine Seyrig was already famous for starring in the very best films of the French New Wave when she met Swiss filmmaker Carole Roussopoulos. In the mid-seventies, they founded Les Insoumuses, a collective dedicated to making feminist films and teaching women to tell their stories through video. The archive footage in this film features near-mythological figures like Simone de Beauvoir, Chantal Akerman, and Marguerite Duras, as well as Carole’s and Delphine’s own work. Subversive, humorous, bold, and unapologetic, the two women show us the world from their unique perspective.

The protagonist of this film is the reclusive, introspective Ukranian-Brazilian writer Clarice Lispector (1920–1977). It is based on a single TV interview broadcast only after her death. Why Clarice? She and the filmmaker share similar family backgrounds in Brazil, but there is more to it than that. Her words in the interview correspond to a feeling of ‘in-betweenness’ or hiatus, which resonates deeply with the filmmaker’s feelings today.
