The Smiling Madame Beudet / La Souriante Madame Beudet (1923, 38 min, 16mm)
A masterpiece of cinematic impressionism, this film portrays the subjectivity of a young, modern woman seeking to escape an oppressive marriage, her perspective and desires conveyed through gesture, movement, editing rhythm, visual effects, and references to Baudelaire, Debussy, and Pre-Raphaelite painting.

L’invitation au voyage (1927, 33 min, 16mm)
Dulac referred to this film—titled after a poem by Baudelaire, and concerning the emancipation of a married woman who meets a young military officer at a cabaret—as a “melody of images” and a direct response to the literary/theatrical bent of the cinema of her time.
