NOWNESS presents The Inferno Unseen

French filmmaker Henri-Georges Clouzot’s long-lost and unfinished film L’Enfer got another new lease on life this year. The project was initially backed by an unlimited budget and set to star iconic actress Romy Schneider, but the film was eventually abandoned in 1964 after six months of experimental screen tests and three weeks of shooting on location. After the film’s 185 reels were shelved, L’Enfer resurfaced in 2009 as the subject of the documentary L’Enfer d’Henri-Georges ClouzotThe documentary interviewed cast and crew members on the severe problems that abruptly ended shooting and, more importantly, shed light on the innovative lighting techniques and wild visual effects made as part of the film’s rushes.

Lobster Films and MUBI has since restored and reconstructed Clouzot’s visual experiments in The Inferno Unseen (2017), which premiered at the Fashion in Film Festival earlier this year. The new edit is set to a new electronic score by British composer Rollo Smallcombe, who edited and compiled the film with Marketa Uhlirova. NOWNESS recently offered a smouldering clip from The Inferno Unseen, ahead of its next screening on 25 January 2018 at the Palazzo Grassi in Venice. The film will have its North American premiere in April 2018 at the Museum of the Moving Image in NYC.
