Claire Denis at the University of Chicago
Posted on 2018-04-05
In a rare appearance in Chicago, French director Claire Denis will present her latest philosophical sci-fi feature HIGH LIFE at Doc Films at the University of Chicago.
Claire Denis creates films that speak as much through words as they do through movement, rhythm, and texture. Profound and empathetic studies of outsiderhood, immigrant alienation, the ravages of colonialism, and the mysteries of love and desire, her films are not so much watched as experienced in a full-sensory head-rush of sound and image.
