Series: Artist Spotlight: Olivier Assayas

“Movies should not be about other movies, they should be about your experience of life.” – Olivier Assayas

Olivier Assayas joins us in-person for a limited retrospective of his films, including the premiere of the new restoration of his 1994 classic, COLD WATER (a Janus Films release). The director will also be present at the screenings of SOMETHING IN THE AIR and PARIS AWAKENS.

French director Olivier Assayas is the voice of a generation. His brilliant body of work addresses our rapidly globalizing and increasingly technological environments, and interrogates the meaning of art and artistic creation in our finite existence. Born in 1955, he was an adolescent during the galvanizing “social revolution” of May 1968, an experience that would forever impact the way he sees the relationship between ideas and the world.

This event is part of the French Cultures Festival coordinated by the Cultural Service of the French Embassy in Houston, TX.
