SPECIAL GUESTS

MASTERCLASS WITH MILO MANARA

Saturday, November 22nd
PETITE SALLE (Free entrance, limited capacity)
15:30

In the presence of Milo Manara
Interview by Baptiste Coutureau (Cinema Department, Centre Pompidou) and Gisèle de Haan (Collection Director at Dargaud, former Milo Manara’s Publisher at Glénat)

Born in 1945, Milo Manara, the well-known illustrator of adult graphic novels, began his career working on “fumetti neri“, the cheap illustrated paperbacks popular in 1950-60s Italy. In 1976, his career took off after his work for the illustrated magazine (À Suivre). He also became known for his work designing posters for the films of Federico Fellini. The two later collaborated on comic book versions of two of Fellini’s films. In the 1980s, Manara turned towards the field of erotic graphic novels, writing and illustrating such titles as”Click!“,”Butterscotch“, and”Gullivera“, (an erotic version of”Gulliver’s Travels"). Manara’s work is characterized by a playful (some would say juvenile) approach to sex his women are almost impossibly sexy and their relationships are guilt and attachment-free. While some of the scenes can be quite graphic, they never cross the line into hardcore pornography. Manara is still active and drawing in Italy.

Through his Carte Blanche, Milo Manara tells us about his close relationship with the world of cinema. Federico Fellini, Pedro Almodovar, Alejandro Jodorowsky are among illustrious talents he strongly collaborated with. A discussion accompanied with some images from his artwork highlights out this link. Considering the accuracy of his eye in the way he captured times, you will discover how inspiring his universe has always been for the fashion world.

Son of Russian emigrants exiled to Chile, Alejandro Jodorowsky started his artistic career as a puppeteer, poet and theatre director. He moved to France at the age of 23 and joined Marcel Marceau’s Company, then directed Maurice Chevalier’s performances. Five years later, he created with Roland Topor and Fernando Arrabal the artistic movement “Panique” aimed at overtaking Surrealism. He then moved to Mexico where he revolutionized the artistic scene for 17 years creating the avant-garde theatre of Mexico City, and directing movies : “Fando et Lis”, “El Topo” and “The Holy Mountain”. These films brought him fame in the US and in the rest of the world as a cult filmmaker. He later launched himself into comic books collaborating with Moebius, Juan Gimenez and Milo Manara (the recent “Borgia” series). Cult multifaceted artist (movie and theatre director, writer, illustrator), he is also known as a great mystic individual. Having developed the concepts of Psychomagic and Metagenealogy, he is one of the most esteemed specialists of the Tarot de Marseille. His last movie “La Danza de la Realidad”, from its eponymous book, screened its world premiere at the Festival de Cannes in 2013, signaling his great comeback to the world of cinema.

« The Dance of Reality » is his first film in 23 years. The legendary filmmaker was born in 1929 in Tocopilla, a coastal town on the edge of the Chilean desert where the film was shot. It was there that Jodorowsky underwent an unhappy and alienated childhood as part of an uprooted family. Blending his personal history with metaphor, mythology and poetry, « The Dance of Reality » reflects Alejandro Jodorowsky’s philosophy that reality is not objective but rather a dance created by our own imaginations.
