Central Bazaar

Dir. Stephen Dwoskin

UK 1976 | Colour | 156 mins

Cast: Maggie Corey, Marc Chaimowitc, Eddie Doyle

For this remarkable experimental film, the provocative avant-garde legend Stephen Dwoskin gathered together a group of strangers and filmed them as they explored their fantasies over a period of five days: a project that now sounds a little like TV’s Big Brother. The ceremonial gowns and make-up here not only evoke the eroticism of European horror movies but also highlight the film’s interplay between performance and intimacy. Jonas Mekas called it ‘theatre of life’.
