Homage to Denis Lavant

Homage to Denis Lavant

Trained in mime and acrobatics, Denis Lavant is both a stage and screen actor as well as being a musician.

As part of Croisements Festival, the Institut français in Beijing, Broadway Cinematheque MOMA and the China Film Archive, are delighted to be presenting a selection of six of Denis Lavant’s films.

As a stage actor, he performed under the direction of several renowned theatrical directors, such as Antoine Vitez, Matthias Langhoff or Bernard Sobel, whilst on the big screen he quickly became the actor of choice of the filmmaker Léos Carax, with whom he has been working since 1983. At that time, the young filmmaker, looking for the hero of his first feature film, Boy Meets Girl, set his sights on Denis Lavant.  He would go on to play the male roles, alongside Juliette Binoche, in Mauvais sang and Les Amants du Pont-Neuf.
