    “Nudity and purity, sensuality and innocence, grace and spontaneity. I try to harmonize them, and that’s my secret and the reason for my success." - Filmmaker David Hamilton

    Famous for his ethereal images of girls on the cusp of womanhood, iconic British photographer David Hamilton makes his controversial feature film debut with BILITIS.

    Set in the idyllic French countryside, the film sensually explores a young schoolgirl's awakening to intimacy, romance and love during her summer vacation.

    Boasting the filmmaker’s recognisable dreamy style, the “Hamilton blur”, accompanied by the tender music of Oscar winning composer Francis Lai, BILITIS was both celebrated as art and condemned as pornography.

    Is it an alluring erotic masterpiece that captured the romantic aesthetic of the time – or “a soft-core artsploitation picture” (The Times)?  We’ll let you decide.

    Umbrella Entertainment presents Hamilton’s diaphanous images newly restored in High Definition from the original 35mm vault materials archived in France.

    Director: David Hamilton

    Cast: Gilles Kohler; Mona Kristensen; Patti D'Arbanville
