French director Mia Hansen-Løve’s fourth feature, Eden, has been a staple this year at major festivals like TIFF and NYFF. And now the 20-year electronica epic has found a distributor in Broad Green Pictures, the same outfit that financed Isabel Coixet’s Learning to Drive.
Broad Green will release the raved-about film next spring. Here’s their synopsis:
“Eden is an affecting trip into the electronic dance movement in Paris whose rhythms echo its textures and feeling. The film follows Paul (Félix de Givry), a teenager in the underground scene of early-nineties Paris. Rave parties dominate that culture, but he’s drawn to the more soulful rhythms of Chicago’s garage house. He forms a DJ collective named Cheers (as, in a parallel storyline, two of his friends form one called Daft Punk, who float throughout the movie), and together he and his friends plunge into the ephemeral nightlife of sex, drugs, and endless music. Shot by Denis Lenoir, Hansen-Løve’s film is a shimmering swirl of color, light and baselines — an intoxicating cocktail of euphoria and melancholy as alive as any nightclub.”
Hansen-Løve’s previous films include Goodbye First Love and the Cannes Special Jury Prize winner The Father of My Children.
