DetailsCocteau In the Underworld - Jean Cocteau - poet, filmmaker, artist, novelist, opium addict - struggles with writer's block. The Princess, a glamorous stranger arrives and forces him to make a choice between love and fame....a work in progress showing of this new opera featuring video & projection. Les Enfants Terribles - Excluded from school, Paul and his sister Lise create a private world of their own imaginings, but their innocent games soon take a dangerous turn. 'Les Enfants Terribles' is a sinister tale of youthful hedonism and frenzied pleasure where the rules of the Game dictate that two children must die.
