Lisbon & Estoril Film Festival


Eternal, an installation by Daniel Fish

How happy is the blameless vestal’s lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray’r accepted, and each wish resign’d

— Alexander Pope

In 2004, Michel Gondry directed – and Charlie Kaufman wrote – Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, a film that stands somewhere between romance and science fiction. In 2013, Daniel Fish (stage director and artists living in New York) took the final scene of the film (lasting around four minutes) and recreated it with two actors – Christina Rouner and Thomas Jay Ryan – in a continuous loop for two hours, repeating the scene 23 times.

To highlight the connection between the two Works, the LEFFEST will present two special sessions, of both Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and the multimedia show Eternal.

Daniel Fish’s show will be screened in two sessions, on the 7th, at 5 PM and 9 PM, at Teatro Nacional D. Maria II.

Gondry’s film will be screened on the 6th, at 11:15 PM, at Espaço Nimas, with an introduction by Daniel Fish. Later, it will be screened again at Casa das Histórias Paula Rego, at 4 PM, on the 10th.
