Overview

Part 2 of the Louise Bourgeois Trilogy

La Rivière Gentille
Brigitte Cornand, 2007, 100 min., video

Cornand introduces the screening.
In French with English subtitles.

La Rivière Gentille is an unusual narrative biography of Bourgeois. Complementing excerpts from diaries Bourgeois had kept since 1923, Cornand captures understated movements, recitations, and conversations between herself and the artist. We watch Bourgeois put delicate finishing touches on her watercolor series La Rivière Gentille.
