Filmed on the set of Jess Franco’s 1970 cult film Count Dracula starring Christopher Lee, Vampir-Cuadecuc mixes making-of footage with an investigation of the figure of the vampire.

Both playful and deadly serious, the film asks us to consider the undead as a stand-in for both General Francisco Franco, the bloodthirsty avatar of a fascism that won’t die, and cinema, the art that reanimates the dead. (1971, 66 min, digital)

Preceded by: Sarah Winchester, Ghost Opera. This short from master Bertrand Bonello (Saint Laurent, Nocturama) tells the story of an opera company that finds itself strangely haunted as it stages the story of Sarah Winchester, heiress to the Winchester rifle fortune who was driven insane by unseen forces. (2016, 24 min, digital)
