Trailer For The Indie Fantasy Epic SHE IS CONANN a Reimagining of CONAN THE BARBARIAN — GeekTyrant


A U.S. trailer has been released for an upcoming fantasy epic titled She Is Conann, and it’s said to be a reimagining of Robert E. Howard’s Conan the Barbarian.

The synopsis for the film reads: “In a barbaric fantasy sci-fi trip through time, sword-and-sorcery mythology is bent, fractured, and gender-swapped by master visionary Bertrand Mandico in his third feature epic. Six lives, six eras, and six deaths mark Conann’s poetic journey through different incarnations and lesbian loves.”

Guiding Conann through her many epic lives is “Elina Löwensohn as Rainer, a Cerberus of many otherworldly dimensions whose paparazzi camera sees all. The perversity of ‘The Wild Boys’ and the hero’s journey of ‘After Blue (Dirty Paradise)’ come together in this even greater handmade homage as Mandico ropes in influences as lush as ‘Fellini Satyricon’, ‘The Night Porter’, ‘The Hunger’, and Fassbinder’s entire oeuvre to craft a moving portrait of a warrior trying to find her place while outside of space, time, and meaning.”

In addition to Löwensohn as Rainer and Julia Riedler as Sanja, playing the many facets of Conann are Claire Duburcq (After Blue), Christa Théret (Renoir), Sandra Parfait (Lupin), Nathalie Richard (After Love), and Françoise Brion (L’Immortelle). 

The film is an official selection of Cannes Directors’ Fortnight, Fantastic Fest, and Sitges. She is Conann will be released in select theaters on February 2, 2024, premiering at select Alamo Drafthouse locations and at the Anthology Film Archive in New York City. Other screening locations include Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Denver, and more.
