The Buenos Tiempos-produced film A Walk with Dorothée Dupuis and Jessica Gysel Around the Chinese Pavilion and the Japanese Tower in Brussels will premiere at Brussels’s La Loge on April 1.
The film stars two editors of feminist art magazines – Dorothée Dupuis of Petunia and Jessica Gysel of Girls Like Us. In the film, the two women chat and stroll through Brussels’s Laeken Park in Brussels against the backdrop of French architect Alexandre Marcel‘s The Japanese Tower (1905) and the Chinese Pavilion (1910), both considered to be poignant illustrations of the fin-de-siècle Orientalism and cultural imperialism.
Directed and written by Alberto García del Castillo and Marnie Slater, the film continues in the thread of Buenos Tiempos, Int.’s debut production, The Ages of Beatrix Ruf: A History of Power Transvestism (2014), a fashion editorial on drag performativity commissioned for the sixth issue of Petunia magazine. The April 1 film premier will also bring a performance by Bear Bones, Lay Low, Ernesto González’s solo project.
