Our fall CinéSalon series featuring films celebrating the art of making theater kicks off with Venus in Fur, an adaptation of David Ives’ Tony award-winning play. Directed by Roman Polanski, Mathieu Amalric and Emmanuelle Seigner give electrifying performances in this witty and erotic exploration of the power dynamics between director and actress.
