Based on a short story by Karen Blixen, The Immortal Story is set in the Portuguese colony of Macao in the 19th century and concerns a wealthy merchant with skeletons in his closet. Welles’ second-to-last completed feature, the film boasts sumptuous cinematography by Willy Kurant, who would go on to work with Godard and music by Eric Satie.

Acclaimed French filmmaker Claire Denis (White Material, Beau Travail) returns with arguably her most mysterious work since 2004’s L’intrus.
