“THE STALLONE ZONE”FOUR FILMS BY SHIRLEY CLARKE
“Dancer, bride, runaway wife, radical ﬁlmmaker and pioneer --Shirley Clarke is one of the great undertold stories of Americanindependent cinema.”-- Manohla Dargis, New York Times''I'm revolting against the conventions of movies. Who says a ﬁlm has to cost a million dollars and be safe and innocuousenough to satisfy every 12-year-old in America?''-- Shirley Clarke Working at a time when few women were making movies,Shirley Clarke boldly revolutionized what was possible in the world of independent ﬁlm. Moving from dance to cinema, shefused together experimental, documentary and narrative ﬁlmtechniques, turning her camera on junkies, poets, hustlers, gang members and jazz musicians. Always pushing boundaries whilestaying true to her own vision, Clarke was met with censorshipand marginalization at every turn, ignored by historians and written oﬀ as a dilettante. anks to Milestone, several of hergreatest ﬁlms have now been made available in brand new 35mm prints and we're very proud to present them. Please joinus in celebrating the incredible Shirley Clarke.
