Difficult Death_lowres


Filmmaker/actress Jocelyn Marquis hosts an artists’ salon this evening to debut the trailer for her film Difficult Death, an adaptation of Rene Crevel’s 1926 novel of the same name about art, homoeroticism and social revolution. Cast and crew will be on hand to discuss the project, which is filming at locations around the city. Marquis plays Perinne Dumont (pictured), an art school student who becomes enthralled with the artistic life of a transgendered poet, Arthur. She also has feelings for a young painter named Daniel and is torn between the excitement of Arthur’s spontaneous and unconstrained lifestyle and the peace and stability of Daniel’s companionship. The salon takes place from 6:30 p.m.-9 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 7, at 1128 St. Roch St. (at Marais St.) in the Marigny. Cash bar.
