This fairytale double feature curated by Guillermo del Toro begins with Jean Cocteau's classic version of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. Followed by Jacques Demy's DONKEY SKIN, starring Catherine Deneuve in a dual role. Both films in French with English subtitles.

35 mm!
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
LA BELLE ET LA BETE
1946, Janus Films, 93 min, Dir: Jean Cocteau
The first feature directed by Jean Cocteau was a labor of love that attests to the imagination and perseverance of Cocteau and his entire production team in the face of severe deprivations posed by the Occupation. Its Gustave Doré sets and costumes by Christian Berard, its Vermeer-inspired compositions by Henri Alekan (whose cinematography Cocteau characterized as having the «soft gleam of hand-polished old silver»), the Beast's subtle makeup, the fantastic park and architecture of the Beast's castle, the Chateau de Raray, and the delicate beauty of Josette Day all conspired to produce one of the most enchanting films ever made.

DONKEY SKIN
PEAU D’ÂNE
1970, Janus Films, 90 min, France, Dir: Jacques Demy
Jacques Demy's strange, lovely film tells the story of a devoted king (Jean Marais) who promises his dying wife (Catherine Deneuve, a Demy favorite) that his new queen will be equal to her in beauty. Of course, no one can compare to Deneuve, which leaves the queen’s daughter (also played by Deneuve) as the sole contender. Heeding the advice of a bizarre fairy godmother (Delphine Seyrig), the princess delays her father's incestuous advances using a series of impossible dressmaking challenges. In French with English subtitles.

Both in French with English subtitles. | Screening formats: 35mm (BEAUTY AND THE BEAST), DCP (DONKEY SKIN)
