OFFICIAL SELECTION: Irma Vep (Television) is written and directed by Olivier Assayas, and presented in association with HBO .
.
Olivier Assayas's eight-episode HBO mini-series, Irma Vep, is a playful remake of his own 1996 feature film, also called Irma Vep... which was about a film director intent on making a modern-day remake of Louis Feuillade's 1915 eight-episode silent serial, Les Vampires. Making the film not only uber-meta, but also somewhat autobiographical. The series is full of clips from both the Feuillade original and the 1996 film. Alicia Vikander and Vincent Macaigne lead an impeccable all-star cast in this clever, joyous homage to making movies the kooky, old-fashioned, indie way — with passion, ingenuity and a heaping measure of heart.
.
This is Irma Vep’s Theatrical World Premiere, and will be shown in its entirety. All ticket holders will be invited to a mid-screening reception featuring charcuterie by Monsieur Marcel Gourmet Market and Restaurants
