Irma Vep at Brattle Theatre
Special 35mm Screening! MUBI Presents!
(1996) dir Olivier Assayas w/Maggie Cheung, Jean-Pierre Léaud, Nathalie Richard, Alex Descas, Arsinée Khanjian, Bulle Ogier, Lou Castel [99 min; 35mm]
In Olivier Assayas’ international breakout film, Hong Kong superstar Maggie Cheung stars as a version of herself in Paris to shoot the remake of a silent film serial – Les Vampires. Once on set, Maggie finds the production is in chaos and everyone – including perhaps the character she is playing – wants to possess her. A remarkable film about filmmaking and stardom.
We have partnered with the curated streaming platform MUBI to celebrate the launch of their new series of limited-edition poster revivals, designed in collaboration with MONDO. One lucky audience member will win an exclusive, screen-printed IRMA VEP poster designed by Sam Smith. Second prize will be a free one-year subscription to MUBI!
