PAUL BOWLS HALFMOON / MAKING OF
HALFMOON (Paul Bowles – Halbmond) Frieder Schlaich, Irene von Alberti, D 1995, 93 min
Three short stories by Paul Bowles, the American writer from Tangiers whose 1949 Masterpiece The Sheltering Sky was filmed by Bernardo Bertoculli in 1990, are the subject of a prizewinning film by Irene von Alberti and Frieder Schlaich from Germany.
PAUL BOWLES – HALFMOON is a magical three-part descent into the realms of cobras, kif and quandries of life. The famous cult author himself introduces the episodes, which all tell of ununsual relationships.
