Another Version of Events: Celine and Julie Go Boating (1974)

Celine and Julie Go Boating, 1974

Celine and Julie Go Boating, 1974

Director Jacques Rivette, 1974, France, 193 min

Celine, a magician, and Julie, a librarian, meet in Montmartre and wind up sharing the same flat, bed, fiancé, clothes, identity and imagination. Soon, thanks to a magic sweet, they find themselves spectators, then participants, in a Henry James-inspired 'film-within-the film'; a melodrama unfolding in a mysterious suburban house. Selected by Biennial 2016 artist Mark Leckey.

Another Version of Events is the official Liverpool Biennial 2016 film programme. A selection of films influenced by genres including sci-fi, mockumentary, pseudo-documentary, mockbuster and ethnofiction is being screened every week throughout the Biennial.
