Camille 2000

Saturday Jun 4, 2011 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM This is a past program

Co-presented with the UCLA Film & Television Archive as part of Smooth Operator: The Opulent Eroticism of Radley Metzger

If kids from Beyond the Valley of the Dolls rented the chateau from Last Year at Marienbad, the result might play like Radley Metzger’s Camille 2000, digitally restored by Cult Epics. Saturated with 1960s decadence, lovers float through haute couture, inflatable furniture, and fetish parties to a psychedelic score. Afterwards, party like the jet set in the Hammer courtyard. (1969, Dir. Radley Metzger, 115 min.)

Public programs are made possible by Hammer Members and the generosity of Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelley, and an anonymous donor.
