Territoires cinématographiques is a space for dialogue between live performance and cinema, devised in conjunction with Avignon's Utopia cinemas. It's a daily programme of film screenings after which the public can meet and talk with directors, choreographers, filmmakers, researchers and critics invited to the Festival d'Avignon. It's a space designed to explore the intimate relationships that these speakers maintain between disciplines and the world. It's a space where we can take a closer look, from the small to the large, at the themes that are brought to life on stage, on screen and under the plane trees of the Café des idées.
Programme films, the choice of Philippe Quesne
The screening will be followed by a discussion with Elina Löwensohn, Isabelle Prim and Philippe Quesne. Moderated by Oriane Jeancourt Galignani from Transfuge magazine.

Lucifer Rising exists as an intersection between two filmic ideas, and it is within this intersection that the film gains it’s power: more than any other film, Kenneth Anger’s Lucifer Rising is about spectacle and hypnosis.
