The Tulse Luper Suitcases: The Moab Story

Directed by Peter Greenaway

Part of Greenaway’s larger multimedia experiment that includes DVDs, installation, website, and TV, this is the first, dazzling, digitally-produced, instalment of the Tulse Luper big-screen trilogy. “The story of roguish, autodidactic Tulse Luper, and the many prisons in which he dwells, is also the story of the 20th century: a history of competing ideologies, seemingly random encounters and (crucial, this) the element Uranium. Seamlessly incorporating a barrage of images, texts and music… It must be experienced to be believed.” (Edinburgh Film Fest website)
