Digital Restoration

A searing, indelible portrait of anticolonial struggle in 1960s Africa, Maldoror’s adaptation of a novella by the Angolan writer José Luandino Vieira—“a courageous and powerful piece of filmmaking”—was banned by the Angolan government until the country obtained its independence from Portugal in 1975 (Basia Lewandowska Cummings, Africa Is a Country).

Varda’s experimental feature, shot in Hollywood in 1968 and starring Warhol superstar Viva, is a deliberately decadent riff on fantasy, immaturity, and violence. “More than a time capsule of events and moods—it’s a living aesthetic model for revolutionary times” (Richard Brody).
