Opening screening on October 21 at 1pm, in the presence of filmmaker Marie Losier and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge.

This remarkable, multiple award winning film is not an ordinary musical documentary. Even though the main character is Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, a pioneer of industrial music and the controversial musician and performer in the bands Throbbing Gristle and Psychic TV; the subject of the film is also the singular story that he lived with his wife and artistic partner, Lady Jaye. Out of love for each other, the couple decided to fuse into a single entity (pandrogyny) by way of surgical transformations (breast implants, facial surgery).

Co-presented with the Festival du nouveau cinéma.
