ESPACE DIAPHANES, Dresdener Str. 118, 10999 Berlin

A special screening with the co-directors Dennis Cooper & Zac Farley in person.


A young disabled guy wants to explode. He wants to do it in public. He's only interested in the act's effect. That he'll die is unimportant. He's not suicidal. He has no ideology. He's not interested in "heaven" or in going there. He doesn't want people to misinterpret the explosion as his death.


Written and directed by Dennis Cooper and Zac Farley
With Théo Cholbi, O.B. De Alessi, Benjamin Sulpice,
Julien Fayeulle, Sylvain Delcoitre and others.
France, 2018, length: 92’
Production Company: Local Films




"One of the 10 best films of the year.” — John Waters

"Cooper & Farley’s film is lyrical yet rigorously Bressonian, and aches with unrequited passion, confused teenage angst, and stinging black humor. A brilliant, disturbing, but darkly rewarding experience." — Dennis Dermody, Paper Magazine

“A stunning film.” — Interview Magazine

“Together with his collaborator Director/Writer Zac Farley, Dennis Cooper has created a great, astonishing film as disquieting and eloquent as the George Miles Cycle.” — Artforum

“PERMANENT GREEN LIGHT exteriorizes the complex inner world of haunted youth. This remarkable film with Hanekian overtones seems to dialogue with Bertrand Bonello’s NOCTURAMA in its invitation to forget the omnipresence of terrorism in our lives. — Cineuropa
