FANDOR: A Double Shot of "35 Shots of Rum"

EDITOR’S NOTE: As part of Keyframe’s ongoing spotlight on the films of Cinema Guild, Press Play features a double shot of video essays edited by Kevin B. Lee — both discussing the themes of Claire Denis’ acclaimed family drama 35 Shots of Rum. The first essay is based on film critic Roger Ebert’s four star review of 35 Shots of Rum published last year. The second essay cleverly combines video footage of the film with an audio interview of director Claire Denis, recorded at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival. These essays can be viewed on Fandor here.

Essay #2: Director Claire Denis on 35 Shots of Rum

Music tracks “Opening” and “Train Montage” featured on the video are by Tindersticks from the 35 Shots of Rum soundtrack, available from Constellation Records.
