Caspar Noé

Born in Buenos Aires. He studied philosophy at the Sorbonne and directing at École Louis-Lumière. He began with short films noticed at international festivals, incl. “Carne” (1991), which he continued in his full-length debut, “I Stand Alone” (1998). The works of Gaspar Noé caused a shock from the very beginning, showing the unknown face of France - its dark corners, where violence was born. The next film, “Irreversible” (2002), won the title of one of the most controversial films in the history of cinema. The director, focused on the topics of rejection, violence and sexuality, uses long shots and chiaroscuro, uses hand-shot photos, and in the soundtrack – persistent low noise. A visionary of contemporary cinema, experimenting with fluid editing and psychedelia, he consistently exceeds the social taboos.
