"A poetic phantasmagoria inspired by the world of cinema," according to notes, "Iris presents an imaginary journey through the evolution of cinema – from the foundations of the art form to the bustle of the soundstage – through optical effects and film genres. Iris transposes into a language of dance and acrobatics all of cinema’s splendor, inventiveness and, above all, its sense of wonder."
Here is a look at the starry red carpet:
