What happens when a prolific institution, such as the University of Michigan, showcases one of the most unequivocal depictions of human sexuality from controversial French director, Gasper Noe? We get to find out this month, as a controversial piece of cinema will be playing at the University of Michigan Theatre.
Noe is known for creating films that focus on sensitive subject matters that some find explicit or controversial. If college has taught us one thing, it’s that we have to interpret things for ourselves and not always believe the words of others.
Although Noe is subject to deep criticism, he has received 10 awards and 15 nominations. Human sexuality can be a risky thing to depict, but it takes someone confident in their vision to make it happen.
“You can make a piece of art with people having sex. There is no line. Anything that is shot or reproduced in an unusual way is considered artistic or experimental,” Noe said in a statement.
Noe’s film, Love in 3D, will be shown on Sunday, Nov. 8 and Tuesday, Nov. 10at the Michigan Theatre in Downtown Ann Arbor. This is his third film to be played there, preceded by Irreversible and Enter The Void. The film has an NC-17 rating and anyone under the age of 18 will not be permitted to attend.
We all owe it to ourselves to experience new things and The Michigan Theatre is only about 10-20 minutes away from the Ypsilanti area. Sex isn’t the under-the-table subject it used to be and any individual who is up to the challenge should take a peek at this film. .
