It’s 1992 in Paris and the rave scene is going strong when Paul, a young literature student, first encounters the garage music that will change his life. Immediately hooked, he forms a duo with his friend Stan and gradually makes his name as a DJ and nightlife promoter, attaining some local fame as well as a couple of big bookings in New York. Along the way, he falls into a circle of friends, girlfriends, and fellow artists, including American expat Julia (indie fixture Greta Gerwig), Parisian scenester Louise, even legends-in-the-making Daft Punk. Festival favorite Mia Hansen-Løve (Father of My Children, SIFF 2010) captures both the eternal challenges of the artistic life as well as a particular moment in the history of electronic dance music. Featuring a vibrant soundtrack that doubles as an introduction to the genre, Eden puts you not just at the center of the scene, but right there on the dance floor, where the turntables are spinning, the lights are flashing, and the crowd is united in a moment of ecstatic musical communion.
