Virtually impossible to see over the last four decades, the IFI is screening Jacques Rivette’s magnum opus Out 1: Noli Me Tangere in its full-length version. This marks the first time the film has ever played in Ireland, and is a remarkable opportunity to finally experience one of the Nouvelle Vague’s most expansive creations.

Out 1: Noli Me Tangere is the cinephile’s holy grail; a 13-hour opus of eight episodic extended sequences of experimental theatre influenced by the work of Balzac (as is the film itself).  Each episode is interwoven with the story of a man (Jean-Pierre Leaud), a seemingly deaf-mute

As the narrative ebbs and flows, Out 1 offers no certainty or pinnacle, alternatively, Rivette offers an experience unequaled in its cinematic intrigue.  Unique and monumental, Out 1 is not to be missed.
