Lars von Trier Retrospective
Meeting with the Director via Videoconference
Danish filmmaker Lars von Trier owes his international reputation to the awards won at the Cannes Film Festival in 1996 with Breaking The Waves and in 2000 with Dancer in The Dark, and to the huge public sucess that followed.
Since then, he has presented an oeuvre and a personality that are both passionate and complex, willingly provocative, that will be the focus of the retrospective of his work and the videoconferences held during the Agora Festival at the Centre Pompidou.
On June 8, the filmmaker will look back on his works with Pascal Mérigeau (Nouvel Observateur film critic) and speak with the audience via videoconference, direct from Copenhagen. A discussion followed by the screening of never before seen short films by Lars von Trier when he was a teenager and from his time at film school.
