DEU/FRA/UK/POL/USA | 2019 | dir. Claire Denis, with Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, André Benjamin

I’ve now lived long enough to realise a long-held dream: create a magazine dedicated to one of the true modern alchemists of cinema, Claire Denis” – David Jenkins in Little White Lies

Much lauded French auteur, Claire Denis (White Material, Beau Travail) explores the human psyche in the outer space. Sent out on a mission to explore a black hole, Monte and his infant daughter Willow live together aboard a spacecraft in complete isolation. A solitary man, whose strict self-discipline is a protection against desire, Monte has fathered the girl against his will in a science experimentation. Through this long journey, Monte experiences the birth of an all-powerful love.

The screening on 8 May will be followed by a Q&A with director Claire Denis
