About “Irma Vep”:

Disappointed with her career and recent breakup, American movie star Mira (Alicia Vikander) travels to Paris to play Irma Phebe in the remake of the silent French film “Vampires.” While making this crime thriller, Meera struggles with blurring and blurring the lines between her and the character she plays. The Irma Vape reveals the mysterious ground that lies on the border between fantasy and reality, industrialization and originality, art and life.

Olivier Assayas is one of the most important contemporary filmmakers. He started his career as an illustrator and graphic designer. He later produced his own short films while pursuing his interest in the globalization of culture and technology as editor of Cahiers du Cinema (1980-1985). Since his first feature film, Lebenswut (1986), which won the Critics’ Week Award at the Venice Biennale, he has consistently produced rich and varied work that has earned him international acclaim. Among his most famous films are: “Irma Vape”; “Summer’s End”, described by the New York Times as one of the “best films of the 21st century (so far)”; “Demon lover”; “Cleaning”; “Carlos: The Jackal,” a Golden Globe® winner for Best Television Film and a two-time Emmy® nominee, including Best Director; “The Clouds of Sils Maria”, for which Kristen Stewart won the Cesar Award for Best Supporting Actress; ‘Personal Shopper’ winner of the Director’s Prize at Cannes; “Die wilde Zeit” winner for Best Screenplay in Venice; and more recently “Non-Fiction” and “Wasp Network”.
