Disco clubs

Clubs, nightclubs and other rowdy dance floors are places of ligthness, seduction or dissidence, where musical trends, dramas and romances are born. They are the sulphurous theater of the bodies that are bring together , but also a mental space that can make the multitude and the solitude, the party feeling and the melancholy coexist. From the disco scene of the 1970s to today, this cycle brings together films where people dance without a tomorrow, in the light of neon and strobes.

Gaspar Noé

Son of the Argentinean painter Luis Felipe Noé, Gaspar Noé was born in Buenos Aires in 1963. His family went into exile in France following the military coup of 1976. He entered the École Nationale Supérieure Louis-Lumière and made his debut as assistant director to Fernando Solanas. While shooting his first short film in 1985, Tintarella di Luna, he met Lucille Hadzihalilovic, with whom he collaborated several times and founded the production company Les Cinémas de la zone. In the early 1990s, he starred the actor Philippe Nahon in two films that were noticed at Cannes and launched his career: Carne and Seul contre tous. But it was Irreversible, in 2002, that really established his reputation and an aura of scandal. In eight films that combine extreme experiences and exercises in style, Noé has established himself as one of the most closely followed filmmakers of his generation.

Disco clubs : tour de piste

Il y a un plaisir indéniable à revisiter des films où les clubs, discothèques et autres scènes de party dansant ont une place de premier plan, parce que l’on sait qu’on y trouvera les ingrédients qui nous font jubiler au cinéma : le factice, le clinquant, le rythme et l’absence d’inhibition.
