The South London Gallery (in collaboration with the French Institute and Tate Modern) present Neighbours: Marguerite Duras in the World of Images, curated by Pascale Cassagnau:

Marguerite Duras's films are 'films of voices' in which one 'reads the film and sees the book'. Duras shares with contemporary artists this way of looking at cinematic writing as a 'kaleidoscope space'.

This series of screenings explores the links between Duras's work and contemporary film-making.

27 October, 7pm, £5/£3 conc
David Lamelas, Interview with Marguerite Duras, 1970, 5’13’’
Philippe Terrier-Hermann, La Dérive, 2009, 61’ (followed by a discussion with Philippe Terrier-Hermann)

3 November, 7pm, £5/£3 conc Florence Pezon, I Would Prefer Not To, 1998, 12’18’’

I should say, of course, that my paymasters at Quercus publish Duras's excellent Wartime Notebooks: "retrieved from the papers she left at her death... Wartime Notebooks consists of four notebooks written between 1943 and 1949 followed by ten previously unpublished short stories and autobiographical texts".
