iPOP at the New York Premiere of "demonlover"

iPOP at the New York Premiere of "demonlover"

by Brian Brooks/indieWIRE

A long queue made its way into the MoMA Gramercy Theater on 23rd & Lexington for the New York Premiere of Olivier Assayas' "demonlover" on Tuesday night. Looking fab for the event, cast members Connie Nielsen and Gina Gershon were in the audience for the screening, and were introduced by the film's director beforehand. Also introduced was cast member Chloe Sevigny, who entered the crowded theater wearing a stunning dress, which immediately caught the attention of attendees -- the entire room immediately fell quiet and stared as she made her way to her seat. Following the film, crowds headed down to Plaid near Union Square for the after-party where the atmosphere was definitely "party party party..." People danced, many with drink in hand, to the tunes DJed by Leo Fitzpatrick, who was in Larry Clark's 1995 feature "Kids," while Assayas talked with well-wishers. Gershon and Nielsen hung out at the event with friends and Sevigny worked the room with her pal Natasha Lyonne. Also hanging out enjoying themselves were Lee Renaldo and Jim O'Rourke from Sonic Youth (who created music for the film), Stephen Merritt and Claudia Gonson of the Magnetic Fields, "demonlover" producer Edouard Weil, and the team from Palm Pictures, which is distributing the film in the U.S. MoMA is also be hosting a retrospective of Assayas' films.

Also having a ball at the party was Sevigny's pal Natasha Lyonne ("Party Monster"). Both she and Chloe sported some real flamin' lips for the evening.

All dressed up and hiding on a remote sofa, "demonlover" star Gina Gershon was nowhere to be found until iW located her and politely asked for a pic... "May I take your picture for indieWIRE...? Who...? indieWIRE..... Who...?" snap snap... Gershon is seated next to the film's producer, Edouard Weil.
