‘Sylvia Kristel: From Emmanuelle To Chabrol’

New Hardcover book, and 4-Disc Blu-Ray Set now available for Pre-order!

“There were about twenty exotic girls. Magnifique! Then I saw a girl all alone, long with big eyes moving and I said ‘That’s Her!’ I don’t know why. Maybe the name ‘Kristel’ meaning pure, naïve, beautiful. Sylvia was so beautiful, so pure. Emmanuelle must be naïve and pure, and Sylvia was exactly that.” – Just Jaeckin.

A trailblazing figure in film and popular culture, Netherlands native Sylvia Kristel became one of the biggest stars in the world as Emmanuelle in 1974. Alongside her most famous role, directed by Just Jaeckin, a little-known fact is that Sylvia Kristel also appeared in over 20 films between 1973 and 1981 featuring exceptional work with some of the greatest directors in film history including Walerian Borowczyk, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Roger Vadim and Claude Chabrol.

Now the story of Sylvia’s astonishing career in the ’70s is told in Sylvia Kristel: From Emmanuelle to Chabrol, written by Jeremy Richey. Featured are new interviews with Just Jaeckin, Pim de la Parra, Robert Fraisse, Joe Dallesandro and Francis Lai among others.

Sylvia Kristel: From Emmanuelle to Chabrol is a film-by-film guide to one of the most distinctive and uncompromising careers in modern cinema, and a celebration of a most remarkable woman in a fully illustrated coffee-table book written by author Jeremy Richey.

A homage to Dutch movie star Sylvia Kristel, to be released as a Hardcover book written by Jeremy Richey, and produced by Cult Epics.  Cult Epics have launched an INDIEGOGO Campaign for the book, offering a 4-Disc Blu-ray set of her films previously unreleased on DVD and Blu-ray in 2K Transfers as an Exclusive Perk with a bonus Interview disc.
