Following photographer Daido Moriyama, performance artist Vanessa Beecroft and writer Bret Easton Ellis, Saint Laurent has chosen to tap Gaspar Noé for the latest chapter of its project Self. The new collaboration has thrilled Anthony Vaccarello who said:

“Gaspard is one of the most talented artist nowadays. I always admire his work. It was an instinctive choice to me. I like his narrative approach, the whole process. We talked about experimental movies from the 60s and 70s, especially the ones from Kenneth Anger. The only thing I asked him was to improvise a story. Filming it with Béatrice and Charlotte was one of my inner darkest fantasies.”

For the artistic project with which the house explores its different souls, the controversial director made a psychedelic 50-minute mockumentary starring Béatrice Dalle and Charlotte Gainsbourg and other talented actors such as the next best thing of French cinema Felix Maritaud. Presented at a night projection during the Cannes Film Festival, Lux Æterna is described as "a vibrant essay on respect for beliefs, the actor's ability and the art of making films".
