Camille (1921, USA) by Ray C. Smallwood, with Alla Nazimova and Rodolfo Valentino (77')
Presentation: Mercedes Monmany

Based on the novel by Alexandre Dumas (fils) of the same title, it depicts the passion of a courtesan from Paris, who retires to live her love affair in the country in sophisticated scenarios. With a futurist and art deco setting, the new version of the drama is performed by the Russian-American actress Nazimova, a pupil of Stanislavsky and the star of Salomé (1923), directed by Charles Bryant, which was screened to coincide with the Art deco exhibition held at the Fundación Juan March in 2015.

On Saturday, the video of the presentation recorded the day before will be shown.
