LUX AETERNA - Gaspar Noe's 2019 feast finally getting a U.S. release!

May 20 to May 23
Friday thru Monday 8:30pm ONLY!

Dir. Gaspar Noe - 2019 - 52m - France - In French with English Subtitles - No Matinees - not for the kids!

PLEASE NOTE:  This film contains extended sequences of flashing lights that may impact people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised.

Taking place backstage of a French film production, often utilizing split-screens to follow two characters at once,  Charlotte Gainsbourg, acting as herself, plays the film’s — and the film-within-a-film’s — leading role of an actress taking on the role of a witch burned at the stake while French actress Béatrice Dalle, playing a version of herself as well, takes on the on-screen role of director. The film progresses with mounting tension as the set descends into aggressive chaos— both in style, form, and plot. Actress and model Abbey Lee (The Neon Demon), Karl Glusman (Love), Claude-Emmanuelle Gajan-Maull (Climax), Félix Maritaud (Sauvage / Wild, Knife + Heart), and Clara Deshayes also appear as interpretations of themselves.  

“The closing moments of Lux Æterna are such a disturbing outburst of light, color, and 3-D illusions they might make even stereoscopic auteur Ken Jacobs avert his eyes.” - Eric Kohn, IndieWire

“A fascinating sensory experience. It will either be exactly the nightmarish dreamscape one hopes for or the repellant fascinations of boundary pusher run amok.” - Nicholas Bell, Ioncinema

"Moves from comic improvisational chatter to anarchic chaos and violence featuring beautiful people.” - Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter

THE TALE OF KING CRAB

May 20 to May 23
Friday thru Monday 4pm, 6:15

Dir. Alessio Rigo de Righi, Matteo Zoppis - 2021 - 105m - Italy - In Italian & Spanish with English subtitles

Luciano is a wandering outcast in a remote, late 19th-century Italian village. His life becomes undone by alcohol, forbidden love, and a bitter conflict with the prince of the region over the right of passage through an ancient gateway. When the quarrel escalates, Luciano is exiled to the distant Argentine province of Tierra del Fuego where, with the help of ruthless gold-diggers, he searches for a mythical treasure, paving his way toward redemption. However, in these barren lands, only greed and insanity can prevail.

"Profound... [the film] owes its existence to a really good story, a little exaggeration, and the enthusiastic consumption of alcohol." - Screen Slate

"A work of genuine cinematic imagination and power." — FILM FESTIVAL TODAY

“Recalling the works of several revered auteurs, Italian and otherwise, it’s a novel film of various intersections announcing an intriguing pair of new directorial voices.” — IONCINEMA

“[An] unforgettable chronicle of humanity.” — INTERNATIONAL CINEPHILE SOCIETY

“Pirates, princes, crabs, treasure maps, gold-diggers, and shipwrecks… Billowing from the fantasy world of KING CRAB is an ancient pleasure, a childish enthusiasm that kept me hooked and hypnotized, prompting the question you’d expect from the very best of stories: what’s going to happen next?” — MUBI
