Mobile Kino Presents:
Portrait of a Lady on Fire (2019)
(French/Italian with English Subtitles)
(COVID-19 regulations apply. Please see bottom of post)
Set in late 18th century France, Portrait of a Lady on Fire tells the story of a young painter, Marianne, who has been commissioned to paint the wedding portrait of Héloïse, only this must be done with without her knowing. Therefore Marianne becomes an observer, and companion to Héloïse during the day, and paints her image at night.
“An antidote to the long cinematic history of tragic lesbian love stories, Portrait of a Lady on Fire also explores the ‘female gaze’ and the suppression and active erasure of queer histories. Director Céline Sciamma says: “There are missing images, missing characters. But sometimes cinema can create collective memories. So if the story hasn’t been told, it definitely belongs to today.”
