How our habitual engagements with writing, reading, performance, publishing, and politics have been transformed in the internet age are some of the concerns addressed in NON-FICTION (Double vies), the new film from writer-director Olivier Assayas.
The film—Assayas’ seventeenth feature, and one that carries a strong echo of Rohmer—stars Juliette Binoche, Guillaume Canet, Christa Théret, Vincent Macaigne, Nora Hamzawi, and Pascal Greggory as denizens of the Parisian culture-media complex, and its Los Angeles premiere this week is part of the annual AFI Fest.
