AN EVENING WITH BRUCE LABRUCE inc SAINT-NARCISSE d. Bruce LaBruce, 2020, presented by DMovies & Doesn’t Exist at Rich Mix (18 APR 18:45).

“Transgressive Canadian filmmaker Bruce LaBruce showcases one of his latest and most acclaimed film creations, SAINT-NARCISSE. Set in Quebec in the early 1970s, the film explores the romantic connection between two identical twins separated at birth and reunited at adulthood. They fall in love and begin a twincestuous relationship that is beautiful and shocking in equal measure.”

“After the film, the director will showcase images from his latest project, a photoshoot for Doesn’t Exist magazine that recreates Pasolini’s 1968 classic THEOREM. LaBruce will then be joined in conversation by very special guests for a Q&A, hosted by Victor Fraga. Audiences will be able to purchase Doesn’t Exist‘s tribute to Bruce LaBruce featuring his 21st century vision of THEOREM. The director will also be available for book signing and photo ops with the audience. Please note: this is an 18+ event.” (Rich Mix)
