To check all the films in the fest go here. Be sure to check page 15 with all the information about the Léa Pool Retrospective that includes screening of Maman est Chez le Coiffeur, Anne Trister, Emporte-moi, Lost and Delirious, La Demoiselle Sauvage, Mouvements du Désir, A Corps Perdu, La Femme de l’Hôtel, Rispondetemi and Strass Café. If you live nearby I suggest you do not miss the rare opportunity of watching her earlier movies in the big screen, especially visually outstanding Anne Trister.
