A very personal project

“The short film Death of David Cronenberg is me coming to terms with my death, embracing it metaphorically and literally. And then my wife died in 2017. We were married for forty-three years. A big part of me died with her.”

“This film is also a way of embracing her, of embracing this part of her that was me. Of course, you can’t know it when you watch it, we have to tell you “, underlined the director. Vincent Cassel will play a sort of alter-ego of the director.

Les Shrouds will be presented in competition at Cannes on Monday May 20, 2024, then the film will be released nationally on September 25, 2024.
