Claire Denis' new film "35 Shots of Rum" Opens : Sept 16 - NYC

Claire Deni's newest "35 shots of Rum" where her explorations of urban life are told through
images of everyday events; transportation, rest, work, home, social activity, quietude - depicting
the daily mundane as scenarios consisting of their fundamental beauty, light, sound and motion.
It also is a keen exploration of race and minority on the fringes of sprawling Paris, told through
the slowly revealed history of one family. Many of Denis' same visual techniques and concerns
are at play throughout "35 Shots...", but here they make for extended threads of compositional
interplay that are more perfectly aligned than any of her previous work.
