Freedom

Albert Serra’s films are inspired by Sade, Casanova or Dracula… In Freedom, he films the forest at night and imagines a libertine orgy in the time of Louis XV. We met Albert Serra, one of the most extreme and freest filmmakers in Cannes this year.

Freedom

Interview

The spanish director of The Death of Louis XIV, contemplative film with Jean-Pierre Léaud presented to Cannes in 2016 with Freedom, a nocturnal poem on the debauchery in which we meet Helmut Berger (The Damned). A sensorial trip outstanding linked to his work way. Filming with three digital cameras before cut in hundreds of rush hours. “Like a writer writing before reading again, and finding out by rereading what he meant.” A film with black romance that evokes Pasolini as Visconti. One of the most radical experiences of this festival.
