Harold Golen Gallery. April 26th, 2008.
Harold Golen Gallery is presenting a series of screenings titled Art House Cinema.Every month the gallery opens its doors to the public for one evening of short films, clips, documentaries and movies. On April 26th, 2008 at 8:00 p.m. the gallery presents the screening of the film The Devils from 1971 directed by Ken Russell.
Cardinal Richelieu and his power-hungry entourage seek to take control of pre-Rennaisance France, but need to destroy Father Grandier – the priest who runs the fortified town that prevents them from exerting total control. So they seek to destroy him by setting him up as a warlock in control of a devil-possessed nunnery, the mother superior of which is sexually obsessed by him. A mad witch-hunter is brought in to gather evidence against the priest, ready for the big trial. This version of Ken Russell’s masterpiece restores all of the cut footage that was removed when the film was released including the never before seen “Rape of Christ” sequence that was originally censored from the movie in 1971. A fantastic bizarre journey into Hell on Earth!
