London Film Week
UK Preview Screening
In Belle Époque France, Colette’s marriage to Henry ‘Willy’ Gauthier-Villars (Dominic West) thrusts her from a simple country life in Burgundy to the raucous creative demi-monde of Paris. Swiftly developing her literary talents, Colette’s first novels are nonetheless published under her Svengali-like husband’s name. Willy, an author in his own right, basks in the glory bestowed upon the wildly popular ‘Claudine’ stories, actually penned by his wife.
The screening will be preceded by a short film:
Claudius Gentinetta | Switzerland
In a firework display of digital self-portraits, hundreds of quaint, embarrassing and dreadfully disturbing selfies were arranged in a unique short film composition that outshines the abyss of human existence.
