Roman Polanski / US, 1968
Gripped by paranoia, timid Rosemary (Mia Farrow) suspects her husband Guy (John Cassavetes), a failing actor, has fallen under the spell of a coven. A classic chiller about the appeal of black magic in the sixties. Polanski coaxed the performance of a lifetime out of Mia Farrow. The line between delusion and reality is only wafer-thin. One of the most memorable films of the American New Wave.
Fifty years ago, students, factory workers and filmmakers challenged the Establishment, from Paris to Mexico City, carrying not only bricks but also agile and light 16mm cameras.
