Visa de censure no. X

Here are about two minutes from the closing credits sequence of Pierre Clémenti’s Visa de censure no. X. Clémenti was, in the apt description of Helen Donlon, “European cinema’s christ-devil child.” He made this countercultural carnival of a short film between 1967 and 1975, under the influence (amongst other things) of New American Cinema, via Québécois film artist Etienne O’Leary. The psychedelic musical accompaniment on the soundtrack is by Clearlight Symphony, later known as Clearlight, headed up by pianist Cyrille Verdeaux.
