Film Notes

Her Violet Kiss re-contextualises a scene from a lost silent German title Liebeshölle, 1928 (or Pawns of Passion, 1929) for contemporary audiences during a global pandemic.
The source film was directed by Wiktor Biegański and Carmine Gallone, and stars Olga Tschechowa. It was believed to be a lost film until Bruce Lawton uncovered an incomplete print in a cache of films that had been stored in a barn in Pennsylvania and donated it to the Library of Congress National Audio-Visual Conservation Center. Director Bill Morrison scanned the print in 2013, and this copy had remained in his personal archive, unseen until now. In this revision, the deteriorating nitrate print has been scanned, slowed down, and re-edited with Michael Montes’ score.
