It’s the summer of 1979 and in the streets of Paris, France, a serial killer is on the loose. But Anne — played by radiant French pop superstar Vanessa Paradis —  isn’t aware of this yet. Instead, she is sulking over her breakup with Loïs, her lover and the editor of the third-rate gay porn Anne produces. In an attempt to win her back, she decides to shoot her most ambitious film yet, with the full support of her flamboyant best friend Archibald. But Anne gets more than she bargained for when one of her actors is brutally murdered and she gets caught up in a bizarre investigation.

Making her way through dimly lit streets, busy sets, and sweaty clubs to do the job of the ineffectual investigators, Anne is accompanied by a killer retro score composed by French electronic band M83, only one of the many aesthetic details director Yann Gonzalez carefully chose for his vibrant ode to ’70s horror cult classics. As an exciting addition to the screening, the feature will be preceded by “Les vacances continuent,” a neon-lit, blood-soaked music video directed by Gonzalez for the French artist PEREZ.
