The distinction between art and life dissolves in César Vayssié’s pulsating new film Don’t Work, 1968–2018 (Ne Travaille Pas, 1968–2018), which follows a year in the life of Elsa and Gabriel, two young artists studying at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Without dialogue, this hypnotic film follows the pair as they navigate love and create work amid political and social tumult. Set against a frantic montage of images and accompanied by a hypnotic soundtrack by Avia x Orly, this striking film reflects on the societal changes that have transpired since the May 1968 protests.
This screening is followed by a Q&A with director César Vayssié.
