The Seashell and the Clergyman Regie Germaine Dulac
Drenched with hyperpoetic imagery and a fierce spirit of experimentation, the film is marked by animated heads cracked open before our eyes. Reality slips away as our focus is blurred and corrupted, and dancers swirl and twirl in an almost violent, nightmarish frenzy.

Through an exploration of feminist themes supported by experimental filmmaking techniques, Dulac put the issue of gender at the forefront of her film, narratively, formally, and through her own role as director. Her work demonstrated the potential of Artaud’s later theories on cruelty, in a manner tied intrinsically to the gender politics of her film.

The Seashell and the Clergyman (1928), a crucial early work of surrealist cinema, assails the hypocrisies of the church and the military through potent symbols and the slippery logic and chronology of dreams.
