Paris, a few years before the 21st century. The city is threatened by a fatal disease called STBO, that seems to be transmitted by simple caresses. A young man, Alex, is charged to steal the formula of a serum that can fight the disease. One of the most remarkable French films of the early 80’s, this lyrical and poetic thriller featuring the late Michel Piccoli pays imaginative homage to silent cinema.

The Night Is Young will be screened in 35mm.
