Béatrice Dalle directs her first film in which Charlotte Gainsbourg is to play the lead role, that of a woman that is about to be burnt for witchcraft. The shooting does not go well, tensions rise, chaos ensues...
Ater tearing up the world of dance with Climax, Gaspar Noe sets his sights behind the scenes of a movie set. On the basis of a minimal plot and improvised dialog, he constructs a falsely recreative film. More sober than usual (and more accessible), he delivers a bitter portrait of the movie world paired with a fascinating re-examination of the witch myth. Amidst a motley cast featuring Karl Glusman (the hero of Love) and Abbey Lee (The Neon Demon), Béatrice Dalle and Charlotte Gainsbourg bring a new energy to Noe's inferno. Lux Æterna will be shown in its definitive version, enriched by a fifteen minutes bonus introduction.
