The start of the alleged porn film with the controversial French bestselling author Michel Houellebecq has been postponed. The director of the Dutch film collective Kirac Stefan Ruitenbeek announced on Twitterthat the online and cinema release of “Kirac 27 Houellebecq” will not take place on March 11, as originally planned. The postponement of the film was also announced on the collective’s website and has been postponed until further notice.
Ruitenbeek continued on Twitter: They continue to fight for the right to make and show the film. Everything that is currently happening will be part of the film. The film, in which, according to Ruitenbeek, Houellebecq is supposed to have sex with several women, caused a stir after the announcement and the accompanying trailer. The trailer shows the 65-year-old writer (“Elementary Particles”, “Submission”) with a young woman in bed. Houellebecq’s lawyers announced in February that they would take action against the alleged porn film. Ruitenbeek also announced on Twitter that he had sought legal support. The trailer is currently unavailable.
