Germaine Dulac: Duty, Deviance and Desire

The Desire for Form: The Seashell and Clergyman with abstract shorts

These most radically experimental of Dulac’s films are the fruit of an intense period of aesthetic exploration and her quest for an “integral” cinema based on visual rhythms and compositions. The notorious Seashell, written by Artaud, often is considered the first Surrealist film.
