FRA/BEL | 2016 | dir. Emmanuel Bourdieu, with Denis Lavant, Géraldine Pailhas, Philip Desmeules

Louis-Ferdinand Céline, one of France’s greatest writers of the 20th century, was both celebrated for his literary innovations and reviled for his virulent anti-Semitism and collaboration with the Nazi regime. This fascinating film focuses on the writer’s meeting with one of his admirers, American Jewish scholar Milton Hindus, while the former is living in forced exile in Denmark. An engaging and insightful film about morals, art and identity in post-war Europe.

Followed by Q&A with actor Philip Desmeules
