Emerging as a filmmaker in the 80s, Assayas’s early work coincided with the explosion of punk and subsequent post-punk music and culture. Assayas presents a selection of his rare shorts and music films, including a portrait of Winston Tong (of Tuxedomoon), music videos for French pop musician Jacno, and Hotel Atithi – a collage composed for Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore and named for a Mumbai hotel. With Kim Gordon in person.
