LaCinetek is decked out in the colors of the rainbow and celebrating Pride Month with a selection of 30 landmark works of queer cinema.
A burlesque figure wearing a hat adapts with more or less success to his environment. Do you think of Jacques Tati, or Buster Keaton? This is their contemporary counterpart: Palestinian filmmaker and actor Elia Suleiman (Chronicle of a Disappearance, Divine Intervention, It Must Be Heaven...).
LaCinetek succumbs to the fatal genre of Hollywood film noir and its criminal variations: poisonous glamour, irresistible performers (Ava Gardner, Gloria Swanson, Burt Lancaster, Clint Eastwood) dressed to kill, deep blacks, narrative vertigo, lethal stagings signed Hawks, Wilder, Siodmak, Welles, Tarantino...
After bringing Alice Guy to light in 2020, LaCinetek is once again partnering with Lobster Films to present, within its "Hidden Treasures" section, a selection of 7 new films from the beginning of the 20th century made by women, little celebrated yet innovative. Lois Weber, Mabel Normand, Germaine Dulac or Mary Ellen Bute: so many pioneers women filmmakers whose rich filmography, almost unseen on VOD, should be (re)discovered.
As his remake of West Side Story is about to be released in theaters, LaCinetek is delighted to welcome nine Steven Spielberg films in its catalog! (Re)discover the man who, with George Lucas at the dawn of the 1970s, invented the blockbuster and initiated a new era in Hollywood cinema.
