Free viewing: Voilà l'enchaînement by Claire Denis

To coincide with the upcoming release of Claire Denis' new film Bright Sunshine In and to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Le Fresnoy art and audiovisual center, UniFrance is offering viewers a month of free viewing of the short film Voilà l'enchaînement, directed by Claire Denis in 2014.

In 2014 Claire Denis made this short film with the Fresnoy - Studio National des Arts Contemporains, an institution dedicated to higher education, production and distribution in the arts and audiovisual sectors, where filmmaking has featured prominently in recent years. The film features Norah Krief and Denis' longtime collaborator Alex Descas and is based on a text by Christine Angot

Voilà l'enchaînement had its world premiere at TIFF in 2014, after which it traveled the international festival circuit, with screenings held at events in Melbourne, São Paulo, La Cabina (Spain), and Vienna, among others.

Le Fresnoy, which continues to be a hotbed for talented young filmmakers as well as a short-term creative haven for established directors, is about to celebrate its 20th anniversary. It is where Claire Denis made Voilà l'enchaînement, a cinematic interlude that explores variations on the themes of marital passion, paranoia and alienation, and issues of isolation and racism.

You can watch Voilà l'enchaînement free of charge until August 17 by clicking here.

With thanks to Claire Denis and Le Fresnoy
