Yellow Veil Pictures has unveiled the official trailer for Gaspar Noé’s LUX ÆTERNA, which you can check out in the player below. As a head’s up, there are strobe/flashing light effects in the trailer in case you need the warning.
LUX ÆTERNA takes place backstage of a French film production, often utilizing split-screens to follow two characters at once. Charlotte Gainsbourg, acting as herself, plays the film’s — and the film-within-a-film’s — leading role of an actress taking on the role of a witch burned at the stake while French actress Beatrice Dalle, playing a version of herself as well, takes on the on-screen role of director. The film progresses with mounting tension as the set descends into aggressive chaos— both in style, form, and plot.
Actress and model Abbey Lee (The Neon Demon, “Lovecraft Country“), Karl Glusman (Love, Watcher), Claude-Emmanuelle Gajan-Maull (Climax), Félix Maritaud (Sauvage / Wild, Knife + Heart), and Clara Deshayes also appear as interpretations of themselves.
LUX ÆTERNA is written and directed by Gaspar Noé (Climax, Enter The Void), and produced by Anthony Vaccarello for iconic French fashion label Saint Laurent, Gary Farkas, Clément Lepoutre, and Olivier Muller for Vixens, Lucile Hadzihalilovic (Vortex, I Stand Alone), and Noé.
The film made its world premiere at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival and was later selected for the Tribeca Film Festival prior to cancellation due to the pandemic.
The film will open in New York on May 6th and Los Angeles on May 13, with a national rollout to follow.
