Dear Shaded Viewers,
I know that I’ve shown you this film before but the thing is I just finished the most amazing interview with the director Guy Maddin for the next Cinema issue of ZOO and in it he mentioned Kenneth Anger and this film, so I bring it back to you with his comment.
Puce Moment was to be called Puce Women, but only this 6 minute fragment was finished. Situated in the 1920’s, it depicts a lady, Yvonne Marquis, selecting a dress to go out with her dogs. Puce is a colour, a hue of violet, popular in those times
Do you remember the first Kenneth Anger film that you saw; was it Fireworks, or something else? If you had to choose an all time favourite film, what would it be?
A: It was Fireworks, which really stands up
