Étude cinégraphique sur une arabesque

Directed by Germaine Dulac
France, 1929
Short, Avant-Garde


The film’s visual structure is principally composed of variations on the arabesque: arcs of light, water spouts, spider webs, burgeoning trees, flowers and foliage, a woman’s smile, arms stretching, an arm giving rhythm to a rocking chair.
