The Silver Lake Film Festival kicks off its fourth annual festival with an Opening Night presentation of French film “demonlover,” written and directed by Olivier Assaya (“IRMA VEP;” “LATE AUGUST,” “EARLY SEPTEMBER;” “LES DESTINEES SENTIMENTALES”), on Wednesday, Sept. 10 at 7 pm. The Opening Night Gala party will follow immediately afterward at the historic El Cid restaurant in Silver Lake, formerly the site of D. W. Griffith’s studio. Starring Connie Nielsen, Chloë Sevigny, Gina Gershon and Charles Berling, the film features an original score by Sonic Youth. A thought-provoking, radical essay on the matrix of art, life and virtual reality that deliberately toys with narrative conventions, “demonlover” will open through Palm Pictures in New York and Los Angeles on September 19, followed by a national roll-out. Since its world premiere in competition at the 2002 Cannes Film Festival, the film has been edited by 12 minutes with a remixed soundtrack for theatrical release.
