Off Festival

Charlotte Gainsbourg

Kategoria: , ,

Her singing career began with a bang when, at the young age of 13, she performed the controversial duet “Lemon Incest” with her own father, the master Serge Gainsbourg. And she could hardly have hoped for a more successful acting career: her filmography features pictures directed by Michel Gontry, Alejandro González, Iñárritu and Lars von Trier, whose Antichrist landed her award for Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival. Naturally, we’re more interested in her as a singer, and we’ve invited her to the OFF Festival to do just that. From her debut album, produced by her dad, through her collaborative efforts with Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich and Beck, to her latest record, Rest, produced by SebastiAn, Charlotte Gainsbourg invariably stuns audiences with her originality and charisma. Rest is at once sad and furious, and we’re expecting more of those emotions in Katowice this August. Inspired by the cult soundtracks to Brian De Palma’s Carrie, Kubrick’s The Shining, and Hitchcock’s Rebecca, the LP features guest appearances from Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo of Daft Punk and Paul McCartney, but Charlotte’s artistic persona consistently steals the spotlight.
