About the movie
Unlike other teenagers, Roman doesn’t seem interested in sports or drugs, girls or boys. He’s neither nihilist, religious, depressive or suicidal. His goal is to vanish, dying is unimportant and he’s only interested in the act’s spectacular effect. But please, don’t misinterpret it as a death.

Dennis Cooper + Zac Farley, Permanent Green Light, HD video, French with English subtitles, 91min., 2018

“One of the 10 best films of 2018.” — John Waters

“Zac Farley and Dennis Cooper have succeeded in making an incredibly concentrated film, in which every word of the tender dialogues — even in the most brutal of rejections — is exactly placed, and in which every scene is borne by its devotion to its figures. No parable of the meaninglessness of life, but a meditation on the will to total existence.” — DIAPHANES

“Cooper & Farley’s film is lyrical yet rigorously Bressonian, and aches with unrequited passion, confused teenage angst, and stinging black humor. A brilliant, disturbing, but darkly rewarding experience.” — Dennis Dermody, Paper Magazine

“A stunning film.” — Interview Magazine

“Together with his collaborator Director/Writer Zac Farley, Dennis Cooper has created a great, astonishing film as disquieting and eloquent as the George Miles Cycle.” — Artforum
