Los Angeles Film Critics Association to Honor Claire Denis with Career Achievement Award



Claire Denis is ready to obtain  a Profession Achievement Award from the Los Angeles Movie Critics Affiliation (LAFCA) this yr. A press launch introduced that an in-person ceremony might be held on January 14, the place the French filmmaker might be honored alongside recipients of LAFCA awards, which acknowledge the yr’s best achievements in cinema.

“We are thrilled to be honoring Claire Denis, one of the best living film auteurs and a master at depicting the identity crises faced by both the colonizer and the colonized,” LAFCA president Claudia Puig enthused in a press release. “A distinctive sociopolitical point of view and anti-patriarchal sensibility infuse her work, which is deeply evocative — often tender and intimate but never sentimental — and always uncompromising.”

The LAFCA launch praised Denis’ “mastery of the medium, exemplified by boldly elliptical storytelling and sensual, tactile imagery, [which] knows no geographical or thematic boundaries.”

Denis’ newest movie, Cannes thriller “Stars at Noon,” sees Margaret Qualley taking part in a journalist embroiled in a harmful romance with an elusive businessman. It hits theaters tomorrow, October 14, and might be obtainable on Hulu October 28. “Stars at Noon” follows one other 2022 launch from Denis, “Both Sides of the Blade,” which stars Juliette Binoche as a girl caught in a love triangle. 

Described by the LAFCA as “among the world’s most audacious and adventurous filmmakers,” Denis made her characteristic debut with 1988’s “Chocolat.” Her contributions to the panorama of cinema over over the many years since can’t be overstated. Her most revered movies embody “Beau Travail” and “35 Shots of Rum.”
