Around a film

Delphine & Carole: armed with a camera

What is left of the "enchanted feminism" of the 1970s? What is the role of the image in the transmission? How can video activism serve as a self-advocacy approach today? Delphine and Carole, Insoumuses recounts the friendship between the actress Delphine Seyrig and the video artist Carole Roussopoulos, who put their creative and disruptive use of video at the service of their feminist convictions and commitments. Today, what are the new forms of feminist activism and how do they reflect the legacy of the 1970s movement? An evening with the director and grand-daughter of Carole Roussopoulos, Callisto Mc Nulty.

Delphine and Carole

by Callisto Mc Nulty

An Arte film

Famous French-Swiss actress Delphine Seyrig had more than one facet. With Carole Roussopoulos, her compatriot and inseparable friend, the actress crossed the 1970s with a camera in her hand, celebrating feminism, insolence and humour. Callisto McNulty, Carole Roussopoulos' granddaughter, pays a vibrant tribute to two free, joyful and radical rebels who have consistently defended their freedom as women and artists.
