“The influence of European film has been highly significant in the formulation of a significant queer aesthetic.” -- Claude J. Summers, The Queer Encyclopedia of Film & Television
AGFA is proud to present Jean Genet’s UN CHANT D’AMOUR, the only film made by subversive French novelist / felon Jean Genet. Visually reminiscent of Jean Cocteau’s BLOOD OF A POET Kenneth Anger’s FIREWORKS, this electric short is set in a prison with three main characters of a guard and two prisoners -- and is a voyeuristic, confrontational, poetic masterpiece.
Banned in France upon its release, and only available in the US in censored form and through underground distribution, UN CHANT D’AMOUR is now presented in its complete version.
NOTE: UN CHANT D’AMOUR is a short film with a runtime of 26 minutes.
