On February 13th, for Valentine’s Day and for the 10th anniversary of Poly Cocktails, an event by Open Love NY, they had a big party in New-York, where they chose to screen LUTINE, in the presence of my friends Meta and Thomas, who star in the film and have been living in New York for a few months. The screening was organized by Lisa Mackie and presented by Chrissy Raymond Holman, from Open Love NY. I was also happy that Leon Feingold – who gave the Ted talk about polyamory – could finally see the film as well, along with his wife.
I was told it was a beautiful screening and people really appreciated the film! Yeah!
Some of the reviews that people wrote to me then:
It was a gorgeous documovie. Thank you for the opportunity.
Chrissy Raymond Holman, Openlove NY
Well done, funny and insightful.
Denis Akyurek, Hacienda Villa in Brooklyn, NY

I thought that was a good opportunity to write down a reminder of all the US screenings of LUTINE up to now… and I hope we’re going to have so many more!
- The national Premiere in the US was at Columbus, Ohio, at the Beyond the Love summit in 2015! The film had just been screened at the Non monogamy and Contemporary Intimacies Conference in Lisbon, Portugal, as a World Premiere. Wow! That was such an honor!
This is what Dr. Naas-Lattanzio wrote, who then programmed it in Rochester:
LUTINE approaches polyamory in a fresh, perceptive, and intelligent manner. The innovative director, Isabelle Broué, makes surprisingly apt parallels between the creative process behind film making and the exploratory, personal experience of learning about lifestyle alternatives and delving into one’s sexuality.
- We then had a screening at the 5th International Conference on the Future of Monogamy and Non-Monogamy in Berkeley, CA, on February 13th, right a year before the screening in New York. This is where we got to meet Dossie Easton, one of the two authors of The Ethical Slut.
Dawn Davidson from Love Outside the Box wrote:
I loved it! Funny, touching, educational, surprising… I want everyone to see it!
- In March 2016, LUTINE was screened at the Rochester Erotic Arts Festival
- On Pride Day, Pepper Mint, Jade Jossen, Ron Young and Kato Cooks from the Black and Poly group organized a screening in Oakland at the New Parkway Theater for their Polyamory in Pictures monthly event. We had a live Skype session with the audience on the big screen right after the screening: : so much fun!
This is what Dossie Easton told me then:
« Thank you, the movie is beautiful, it’s wonderful. Thank you for reading from La Salope éthique. One of the things I liked about the movie is that you talk a lot about the things people are afraid of. (…) So it’s a good stuff, really good stuff, thank you. Beautiful movie, thank you. »
So… which city or poly event is next? If you’d like to organize a screening, wherever you live, just get in touch with me at email@example.com
