Rome Is Burning (Portrait of Shirley Clarke)

Rome brûle, portrait de Shirley Clarke

France, 1970


Shirley Clarke was filmed in a friend’s apartment during a small gathering held in her honor (among the guests are Yoko Ono and Jacques Rivette); she speaks candidly about the “underground cinema,” its relationship to the politics of protest happening in US, and its negation of Hollywood aesthetics.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
