Léos Carax Retrospective at the TIFF Bell Light Box: August 9–13, 2013 [fr]
From Friday, August 9, to Tuesday, August 13, the TIFF Bell Light Box will pay tribute to one of the most mysterious French filmmakers of his generation: Léos Carax. From “Boy Meets Girl” in 1984 to “Holy Motors” in 2012, this retrospective is an opportunity to discover or to re-discover an extraordinary artist.
Sometimes seen as the “enfant terrible” or the “outcast poet” of French cinema, Léos Carax returned to the forefront of the scene at the 65th Cannes Film Festival in 2012, after 13 years of absence, with “Holy Motors”, a dark, unsettling, and lyric work of fiction.
Invited to Toronto by the TIFF Bell Light Box and the Consulate General of France, Léos Carax will take part in a question-and-answer session with the audience after a showing of his film “The Lovers on the Bridge“ on Sunday, August 11, at 4:30PM.
Tickets for this showing are available to be won. To enter, visit the Facebook page of the Consulate General of France in Toronto.
