Shot during a week between the end of February and the beginning of March 2019, the movie first leaked on Béatrice Dalle's Instagram account. The working title was Relax. It was officially announced as Lux Æterna on may, 2nd 2019, during its late announcement in official selection of Cannes Film Festival.
Thierry Frémaux announced : "On a shooting, two actresses, Béatrice Dalle and Charlotte Gainsbourg, are telling each other witch stories. Lux Æterna is also an essay on cinema, on cinéphilie and on set hysteria. An energetic and brilliant medium-length coming-back - which was still unexpected lately - from Gaspar Noé in official selection. A movie saw at the last minute by the comitee and which will be screened in a Midnight Screening, as hype as mysterious"
