Best known for his collaborations with Jean-Luc Godard, Poto and Cabengo was the first solo film for director Jean-Pierre Gorin. This memorable experimental documentary investigates the case of twin sisters, Gracie and Ginny Kennedy, who call themselves Poto and Cabengo, purported to having invented a private language. Amidst intense public scrutiny, Gorin opts to challenge dominant representational paradigms by directing focus away from the girls themselves and towards the all-enveloping struggle for meaning that their story elicits. In English, French, and German with English subtitles.
