The theme of desire is an integral part of Denis’ work, yet its context and meaning evolves across her oeuvre. Join our invited speakers to delve deeper into this defining motif and ask questions such as what is the role of desire in her cinema? And how does Denis use her unique visual language to express the intimacy between the characters and the world?
