Science fiction pushes the boundaries, explores the improbable, and envisions the future of humanity. It also exposes us to extravagant visual effects and the inventive power of cinema, reflecting our deepest fantasies. In cinema, science fiction is immersive, creating worlds suddenly within our reach. This summer, over one hundred films from the history of cinema will allow us to witness this!

The Wachowskis

Lana Wachowski and Lilly Wachowski are American directors, writers and producers. Together known as the Wachowskis, the sisters have worked as a team through most of their careers. After they wrote the script for Assassins (1995), they made their directing debut in 1996 with Bound and achieved fame with their second film, The Matrix (1999), a major box-office success for which they won the Saturn Award for Best Director. They wrote and directed its two sequels, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions (both in 2003), and were involved in the writing and production of other works in that franchise. Following this commercial success, the Wachowskis wrote and produced V for Vendetta (2006), an adaptation of the graphic novel by Alan Moore and David Lloyd, and released Speed Racer (2008), a live-action adaptation of the Japanese anime series. Their next film, Cloud Atlas, based on the novel by David Mitchell and co-written and co-directed by Tom Tykwer, was released in 2012. They then made the film Jupiter Ascending (2015) and the Netflix series Sense8 (2015-18), which they co-created with Joseph Michael Straczynski. In 2021, a fourth installment was added to The Matrix franchise, The Matrix Resurrections, directed by Lana Wachowski alone.
