EQUATION TO AN UNKNOWN

654

 

It’s a magical film, the only feature by the former painter Dietrich De Velsa (aka Francis Savel aka Frantz Salieri) over which hovers a thousand mysteries and scandals… It’s a sad love song, an ode to the faces and cocks of its actors. It’s almost a “danced” film, where the admirable staging orchestrates a ballet of insatiable sex and overwhelming solitude. — Yann Gonzalez

EQUATION TO AN UNKNOWN—a triple-X, art house rarity from France starring Gianfranco Longhi—will screen for one night only in a newly struck 35mm print.

The underground classic from 1980 shares a bill with KNIFE + HEART, a contemporary erotic horror film whose director—Gonzalez—was instrumental in EQUATION’s restoration.
