☞ DETAILS:
Get ready for this intense double-bill night with auteur-provocateur Gaspar Noé. 1. LUX ÆTERNA: This medium-length film produced by Saint Laurent is a meta-fictional anxiety dream using witchcraft and persecution of women as a metaphor for how the film industry treats women. 2. IЯЯƎVƎЯSIBLƎ: Told in reverse chronology, the film follows a woman’s lover and her former boyfriend through the streets of Paris as they seek to take justice into their own hands after she becomes the victim of a brutal rapist. This STRAIGHT CUT version, in chronological order, premiered at the Venice Film Festival earlier this year.
☞THE MOVIES:
LUX ÆTERNA 🔥
SYNOPSIS: Two actresses, Béatrice Dalle and Charlotte Gainsbourg are on a film set telling stories about witches. A vibrant essay on respect for beliefs, the actor’s craft and the art of filmmaking.
REVIEW: Noé’s message is blunt but powerful: What we are witnessing is not art. It is exploitation and occurs routinely. Lux Aeterna is the most surprising and political film of his career to date. – The London Economic

IЯЯƎVƎЯSIBLƎ 🔞
SYNOPSIS: Why do people only remember their past? Why does no one listen to premonitory dreams? Why does the perception of time only travel in one direction? Why is free will an illusion? Why is man only an animal?
DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT: Why this film? Because the original was told backwards and many viewers, swamped by the anticlockwise structure of the editing, didn’t understand certain aspects of the story. Presented clockwise, everything is clear and also darker. No dialogues have been cut, nor have any events in the story. Which is why this version is called Straight Cut. Until now, Irréversible was a deliberate puzzle. Now it’s a diptych, like an old record whose B side is the less conceptual mix of the track on side A, but this time with voices that are more audible, rendering the meanings of the words more fatalistic.
You will see. Time reveals all things.

☞THE PLAN:
This event will take place at cinéma Luminor Hôtel de Ville, located in the area of Le Marais, by Centre Pompidou. The first screening – LUX ÆTERNA – starts at 7pm. After a well-deserved break from 8pm to 8:30pm, get ready for the second screening: IЯЯƎVƎЯSIBLƎ STRAIGHT CUT. End: 10:15pm. Tickets available online here: https://www.luminor-hoteldeville.com/reserver/F357787/ (please reserve early to avoid disappointment).
Covid-19 era sanitary measures, drawn up by French health authorities, include the obligatory wearing of masks, one empty seat between separate groups of spectators, the cleaning of the theatre at least twice a day, and buying your ticket online is recommended.
Brutal, disturbing, of outraging unrelenting ferocity but also a brilliant and unrivaled technical achievement. What we get is essentially Noé’s contribution to the #MeToo movement and acknowledgement of misogyny in the film industry. Who was expecting this? Nobody.
