Lux Æterna

1074 Bank St, Ottawa, ON K1S 3X3, Canada


Ottawa Premiere!

Two actresses, Béatrice Dalle and Charlotte Gainsbourg, are on a film set telling stories about witches – but that’s not all. ‘Lux Æterna’ is also an essay on cinema, the love of film, and on-set hysterics. French and Danish with English subtitles.

Cannes Film Festival: Queer Palm nominee!
Faro Island Film Festival: Best Visual and Sound Effects award winner!

“A vibrant essay on respect for beliefs, the actor’s craft and the art of filmmaking” (Cannes Film Festival)

“excellent and innovative work” (World Of Reel)

“gloriously frenetic” (Boston Hassle)

“Voyeuristic and perversely engrossing, Lux Æterna is another remarkable addition to Gaspar Noé’s dark and disturbing oeuvre.” (Dread Central)

“Lux Æterna gets the strange compliment of being a nigh-unwatchable film that I’d wholly recommend.” (Film Inquiry)

*Please take note that doors open 30 minutes before showtimes. We encourage people to arrive early. We have a small box office, a small candy bar, and a single-screen cinema, meaning that when most of an audience shows up a few minutes before showtime, it causes a bottleneck. If possible, we appreciate you arriving a little bit early to pick out your seat and get your popcorn. Thanks for your help!
