Gardiens de phare (The Lighthouse Keepers)
With live musical accompaniment by Donald Sosin
Dir. Jean Grémillon. 1929, 66 mins. Digital projection. With Paul Fromet, Geymond Vital. A young man and his father are maintaining a lighthouse off of the Brittany coast when the son begins a descent into insanity—kept from shore by a raging sea, the lighthouse becomes their prison. Grémillon combines on-location exteriors with Andre Barsacq’s dizzying sets to build a harrowing subjective experience of encroaching madness.
