On the occasion of the premiere of their new feature film, Permanent Green Light, we invited Dennis Cooper and Zac Farley to program two films they had on their minds while making it. The works they selected share their own film’s aesthetic concerns and eerie atmosphere of political indeterminacy: Philippe Grandrieux’s transfixing Un lac and James Benning’s anti-psychological take on “true crime,” Landscape Suicide. Cooper and Farley will introduce both films, elaborating on the connections between these haunting works and Permanent Green Light.
