Known outside of France for her roles in film classics like “Last Year at Marienbad,” “Stolen Kisses,” and “The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie,” the late actress Delphine Seyrig was, along with Catherine Deneuve, Jeanne Moreau, and Anna Karina, one of the great female talents to emerge at the birth of the Nouvelle Vague.
But perhaps unbeknownst to most was Seyrig’s involvement, beginning in the late 1960s, with the French feminist movement, for which she became one of its leading celebrity voices during the latter part of her career.
That part of the actress’s life is revealed with considerable detail in “Delphine and Carole” (“Delphine et Carole, insoumuses”), a documentary from director Callisto McNulty that explores how Seyrig and filmmaker Carole Roussopoulos joined forces to make a handful of protest movies, using the new medium of video that became available in the 1970s.
“Delphine and Carole (Delphine et Carole, insoumuses)” made its world premiere at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival.
