Mme. Sury presents two Le Dernier Cri classics: Le Dernier Cri (The Last Scream)1997 and Hospital Brut (Rough Hospital) 1999 which she and her partner, Pakito Bolino, shot, performed in and forced out of a cast of who's who in the International Underground comix scene. Made in Marseille in an abandoned maternity hospital.
