In the 1970s New Wave actress Delphine Seyrig, known for her performances in François Truffaut’s “Stolen Kisses”, “Donkey Skin” by Jacques Demy and as the title role of Chantal Akerman’s “Jeanne Dielman, 23, quai du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles”, was one of the leading voices in the French feminist movement. When she meets French-Swiss video artist Carole Roussopoulos in 1974, they soon engage in radical fights with insolence, intransigence and a lot of humor, using the brand new medium of film. Through the portrait of these two fearless accomplices, and their subversive, militant use of video and cinema, “Delphine and Carole” also retraces the period of “enchanted” 1970s feminism, marked by biting humor and creative energy.
