CLAIRE DENIS IN SANTA MONICA

For the opening night of the American Cinematheque program Salt, Sweat and Sunshine—The Cinema of Claire Denis, the director will join L.A. Times writer Mark Olsen for an onstage conversation at the Aero, followed by a double-bill of CHOCOLAT and WHITE MATERIAL, both of which reference Denis’ upbringing in colonial French Africa.

On Saturday afternoon, Denis will present BEAU TRAVAIL and participate in a post-screening discussion with Justin Chang.

Double-features will fill the rest of the weekend, with pairings of NÉNETTE ET BONI with 35 RHUMS, both with Alex Descas, and TROUBLE EVERY DAY with LET THE SUNSHINE IN, each featuring Nicolas Duvauchelle.
