Von Trier retrospective at Centre Pompidou

French fans of Lars von Trier are in for a treat when Centre Pompidou celebrates the Danish filmmaker with an impressive tour through his films 8-22 June.

A few days after the French theatre release of "Antichrist", Centre Pompidou in Paris opens its doors today on an almost complete retrospective of the Danish director's films – including feature films, advertisements, TV films, music videos, film school films and early amateur films from the 1960s and '70s never before released.

Lars von Trier participates via two video conferences transmitting live from Copenhagen – the first on Monday 8 June in conversation with Nouvel Observateur film critic Pascal Mérigeau, the second on Wednesday 10 June in a collective appearance with American author Mark Danielewski and the English composer Brian Ferneyhough in a talk about the labyrinth nature of their works.

"Lars von Trier – Par delà le bien et le mal" is part of the Agora festival which focuses on the idea of complexity in the arts and sciences.
