Day 20: ‘Scenes From a Marriage’ 1974

I sent an email out to my friends and colleagues this morning, letting them know what I’m up to these days. Specifically about my project.

‘Scenes From a Marriage’ 1974

Today and tonight, I was doing the family things, preparing for guests for the weekend, wondering when I would get to finish this wonderful and compelling film. Just before midnight I found the spot where I’d finished, backed up 25 minutes, and started again from The Vale of Tears.

Oh my God. A devastating finish. It is The Illiterates and In the Dead of Night in a Dark House and I see how the end of a relationship can be more powerful than we could ever imagine before we experienced it for real (ourselves).
