Description:
After two English-language films Olivier Assayas directs his gaze on the French book market, comically portraying authors and publishers grappling with digitalisation.

Alain, a successful Parisian publisher struggling to adapt to the digital revolution, has major doubts about the new manuscript of Léonard, one of his long-time authors - another work of autofiction recycling his love affair with a minor celebrity. Selena, Alain's wife, a famous stage actress, is of the opposite opinion. Alain hires Laure, a young, coolly seductive go-getter, to lead his publishing house into the digital age.

"The digitalisation of our world and its reconfiguration into algorithms is the modern vector of a change that confuses and overwhelms us. Digital economy infringes rules and often laws. Moreover, it questions what seemed solid and granted in society. Yet, it dissolves on mere contact. Non-Fiction does not attempt to analyse the workings of this new economy, but rather to observe how those questions shake us, personally, emotionally, and sometimes humorously." (Olivier Assayas)
