Cane Fire Film Series presents ‘The Little Death’

This month, the Cane Fire Film Series screens “The Little Death” Monday night at the AcA.

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.
