The Kidnapping of Michel Houellebecq

June 12 - June 27

June 12, 13, 14, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27 ♦ Michel Houellebecq, possibly the most widely read living French writer, was believed kidnapped on September 16, 2011. But was he really?

Now he goes one step further by starring as himself in a film that purports to tell the tale. With a nod to O. Henry’s short story, The Ransom of Red Chief, the film explores the dramatic territory where the personae of criminal and victim are remade in unexpected and surprisingly amusing ways.
