Cinema Bizarre curators The Social Cinema have chosen what we consider to be one of the best movies ever made, rife with indelible imagery, performances and music. Entomologist Niki visits the sand dunes to collect insect samples, but finds himself trapped in a pit with a woman.
Tasked with helping her dig out sand, Niki wants to escape, but in the heat and sweat of their close quarters finds his lust for the woman overwhelming. Screening on 35mm.
