For August, the Cane Fire Film Series is screening _The Little Death–_the English translation for the French phrase ‘La Petite Mort,’ which is an idiom and euphemism for orgasm–that marks the directorial debut of Australian writer-director Josh Lawson.
The film is both an edgy sex comedy and a warm-hearted depiction of the secret lives of five suburban couples living in Sydney. Lawson's searing and sometimes shocking screenplay weaves together a story that explores a range of sexual fetishes and the repercussions that come with sharing them. Featuring an ensemble of breakthrough talent, the film was produced by Jamie Hilton, Michael Petroni and Matt Reeder; and executive produced by Phil Hunt, Compton Ross, Josh Pomeranz, Viv Scanu and Stephen Boyle.
The Cane Fire Film Series screens The Little Death on Monday, Aug. 10, starting at 7:30 p.m., at the Acadiana Center for the Arts, located at 101 W. Vermilion St., in Downtown Lafayette. Tickets are $12. For more information, visit AcadianaCenterfortheArts.org. To find more local screenings and community events taking place this weekend visit TheInd.com/events.
