Event description

Description


FRIDAY 4 MAY 2.00PM
SOLEIL Ô
Dir: Med HONDO | France, Mauritania | French with English subtitles | 1973 | 98 mins | UC18+
Main Theatre

Mauritanian-born Med Hondo’s experiences, trying to make a living in a range of menial jobs in 1960s Paris, infuse his first film, Soleil Ô. “From the stylized and surreal opening sequence to the episodic adventures of a particular man, the director presents a series of imaginative set pieces, linked by voice-over narrative, that investigate and dramatize a complex of interrelated themes. A scathing attack on colonialism, the film is also a shocking exposé of racism...” (Harvard Film Archives notes).

Introduction by Peter Hourigan. Restoration Australian premiere. Restored by Cineteca di Bologna at L’immagine ritrovata laboratory in collaboration with Med Hondo. Restoration funded by the George Lucas Family Foundation and The Film Foundation’s World Cinema Project.




Join us for a celebration of screen heritage and preservation, with a showcase of recently restored and archival films.

Over five days, Cinema Reborn, presented in partnership with AFTRS, will screen 16 feature films to shine a light on the long history of the art of cinema and film restoration and the treasures that exist in the world's film archives.
