Suzanne Fletcher, Evelyn Smith, Luc Sante / Fiction / English

The first UK screening of the director’s long lost debut, described by Cahiers du Cinéma as one of the best made movies of the 1980’s.

25 years since the film was destroyed, a negative was discovered amongst the belongings of Paul Bowles, the writer upon whose story the film was based. It’s the story of a young woman who escapes from a mental hospital during the chaos of a nearby multiple-car accident. She is mistaken for a shock victim and is driven to her sister's house by a rescue volunteer. Sara Driver and her long time partner and filmmaker Jim Jarmusch are guest curators of EIFF 2011.
