The always attention-grabbing Gaspar Noé (Irreversible, Climax) is back with brand new movie Lux Aeterna, and Yellow Veil Pictures has debuted the official trailer this afternoon.
The film is being released in theaters in May 2022 courtesy of Yellow Veil Pictures, followed later in the year by a full digital and collector’s edition home video release.
What is Lux Aeterna about, you ask?
Béatrice Dalle and Charlotte Gainsbourg are on a film set telling stories about witches. Technical problems and psychotic outbreaks gradually plunge the shoot into chaos.
Here’s a longer plot synopsis…
“Lux Aeterna takes place backstage of a French film production, often utilizing split-screens to follow two characters at once. Charlotte Gainsbourg, acting as herself, plays the film’s — and the film-within-a-film’s — leading role of an actress taking on the role of a witch burned at the stake while French actress Beatrice Dalle, playing a version of herself as well, takes on the on-screen role of director. The film progresses with mounting tension as the set descends into aggressive chaos— both in style, form, and plot.”

Abbey Lee, Karl Glusman, Claude-Emmanuelle Gajan-Maull and Félix Maritaud also star.
Producers include Anthony Vaccarello & Saint Laurent, Gary Farkas, Clément Lepoutre, and Olivier Muller for Vixens, & Gaspar Noé and Lucile Hadzihalilovic for Les Cinémas de la Zone.
