Lux Æterna
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Lux Æterna, dir. Gaspar Noé, France 2019, 51 min., French with English subtitles, 15

Gaspar Noé (Vortex, Irreversible, Enter the Void) blurs the boundaries between reality and fiction in this singular ode to the suffering and sacrifices involved in the creation of art.  
 
Béatrice Dalle is the director of a new experimental film about witches, and Charlotte Gainsbourg is her leading actress. But as preparations get underway, the increasingly chaotic production slowly unravels as egos and resentments rise to the surface, threatening to derail the entire shoot. Shot in just five days and largely improvised by the superlative cast, Lux Æterna is a powerful and hypnotic assault on the senses that could only have been made by one director.
