Australian-born filmmaker Patrick Pearse’s latest film is an exploration of the human psyche as it charts the internal journey of a young man and the woman with whom he becomes obsessed.
Set in Paris, the two characters feed off one another and their surroundings, even as they each inhabit their own delusional worlds. Blurring the boundaries between François Jane’s ideal and his reality, Pearse veers into the surreal.
“The Misfortunes of François Jane” premieres at the Guggenheim in New York October 24th (you can RSVP to the premiere here), with a live performance by composer Graz Mulcahy. Watch the trailer and see more images from the film below!
