Comics turn dark in this giallo-style revision of Guido Crepax’s surreal BDSM fantasy strip, Valentina. Cult maestro Corrado Farina channels the spirit of 70’s youth – political discussions, sexual experimentation and high fashion flouncing – into a bizarre yarn about a lesbian witch and a camera that kills. Hollywood star Carroll Baker confirms her reinvention as a perverse euro-trash sex goddess, playing supernatural antagonist to glamorous bobbed starlet Isabelle de Funes. In 1973, nothing like this had been seen before. Nothing like it has been seen since. Screening with Freud E Fumetti (1970/10 min) a short documentary by Farina on the cinematic aspects of the comic strip form.
