Renowned French director and actor Patrice Chereau performs in a stage reading of Pierre Guyotat’s highly lauded work COMA.
Winner of the 2006 Prix Decembre, one of the foremost literary prizes in France, COMA is a deeply moving, vivid portrayal of the author’s artistic and spiritual crisis in the 1980s. A striking, poetic performance by Chereau who completely embodies Guyotat’s painful and moving words on life, death, and the struggle to create.
In French with English titles.
