From Argentinian provocateur Gaspar Noé (Irréversible, Enter the Void, Climax) comes Lux Æterna, a striking feature blurring the boundaries between reality and fiction, and an ode to the suffering and sacrifices involved in the creation of art.

French cinema icons Charlotte Gainsbourg and Béatrice Dalle play fictional versions of themselves, starring as the lead actress and the director of an experimental film about witches. But, as preparations for the shoot get underway, the increasingly chaotic production slowly unravels as egos and bitter resentments rise to the surface, threatening to detail the entire film.

Shot over just five days and largely improvised by its impressive cast, Lux Æterna is a powerful, hypnotic assault on the senses like no other, cementing Noé’s position as one of the most incendiary voices in cinema today.
