Our guest of honor Dan Deacon has contracted Covid-19. Unfortunately, he will therefore not be able to ensure his masterclass on Sunday June 26 or present the films of his selection: Ascension, Strawberry Mansion and Skin of Man.
The screenings of these 3 films are maintained.
His masterclass is replaced by the marvelous film realized by Sophie Calle: No Sex Last Night (Sunday June 26 at 5 p.m. at the Lincoln). We wish him a good recovery and we hope he will join us for a future edition.
