|description: Love. Politics. Parasitic manipulation. Julia Hernandez list her husband, shot a real-estate developer out to gentrify Brooklyn, and then vanished without a trace. Well, perhaps one or two traces were left... With different personal consumption habits, Julia has slipped out of the world she new into the Simulacrum - a place between the cracks of our existence, from which human history is both guided and thwarted by conflict between a species of anarchist wasp and a collective of hyperintelligent spiders.

|description: Although Jean Vigo died at the age of 29 having made just four films - of which two are undisputed masterpieces - he is unquestionably one of the great masters of French cinema. From his inventive early short film 'Taris' and 'A Propos de Nice', to the anarchic tale of student rebellion 'Zero de Conduite', and, finally the extraordinary lyrical romantic yearning of 'L'Atalante', Vigo's body of work has been celebrated the world over for its consummate artistry and far reaching influence.|
