At once earthy and transcendent, sacred and profane, the films of French iconoclast Bruno Dumont are heady, uncompromising inquiries into the extremes of human nature. With their blend of Bressonian austerity and startlingly blunt sexuality, Dumont’s first two features, LA VIE DE JÉSUS and L’HUMANITÉ, won him both acclaim and a reputation as the enfant terrible of French cinema. He continued to refine his singular vision in films such as CAMILLE CLAUDEL 1915, a tour-de-force showcase for Juliette Binoche as the tormented sculptor. Refusing to be pigeonholed, Dumont has also dabbled in his own brand of outré comedy, as seen in the binge-worthy murder mystery LI’L QUINQUIN and the gonzo slapstick farce SLACK BAY, yet another provocation in an ever-unpredictable career.
