FRANCE, Spain, Portugal | 132 minutes | 2019

Shortly before the French Revolution in a forest somewhere between Potsdam and Berlin, a group of aristocratic libertines driven out of Louis XVI’s puritanical court gather to act on their wildest sexual fantasies. Here, anything goes, with the quest for pleasure bowing to no law but that of satisfying one’s desires. It’s one long debauched night of limitless fantasies, highbrow decadence, smouldering glances and the most extreme fetishes. Albert Serra maximizes the power of the digital image and meticulous lighting to expose (or obscure) the details of these scandalous acts. Art, pornography, or both?

In collaboration with FTA.

"Liberté more than lived up to its title, suggesting that a truly free cinema is one that still believes in the possibility of subversion." Artforum

Special jury prize, Un certain regard - Cannes Film Festival
