Shirley Clarke: Rome is Burning

Shirley Clarke: Rome is Burning

**Specially imported**

Looking very much like one of her own films, this informal interview with Shirley Clarke was filmed at the Cinémathèque screening of Portrait of Jason in a Paris apartment, surrounded by friends including Yoko Ono and Jacques Rivette. She articulates her approach to “underground cinema”,  her new verite style and the political turbulence of the protest movement which also refers to the film’s title, Rome is Burning.  Additional shorts to be confirmed closer to the screening date.
