The Strange Colour of your body's tears.
FRIDAY 1 NOVEMBER
THE STRANGE COLOUR OF YOUR BODY'S TEARS
Dir. Helene Cattet & Bruno Forzani, 2013 (BEL/FRA)
Klaus Tange, Ursula Bedena
From the visionary directors of Amer comes something just as bizarre, stylised and extreme. A businessman returns home to discover his apartment locked and his wife mysteriously vanished. What follows is a surreal journey that will please fans of Peter Strickland (Berberian Sound Studio) and Dario Argento.
“Psychedelic and mesmerising.” Screen
DELIVERY with special guest Director Brian Netto
Dir. Brian Netto, 2013 (USA)
Danny Barclay, Laurel Vail
This genuinely fresh and exciting take on the 'found-footage' film proves that it's still possible to take the genre in new directions. Building its story around a never-aired reality show episode which follows a couple trying for their first child, the story soon darkens as the young mother starts to believe her unborn child just might be possessed.
“Refreshing, scary, creepy.” Indiewire
Dir. Renaud Gauthier, 2013 (CAN)
Katherine Cleland, Ivan Freud
The mid-70s: a timid young New Yorker is fatefully exposed to the pulsating rhythms of a brand new genre of music: Disco. Unable to control his murderous impulses stemming from a childhood trauma, he becomes a dangerous serial killer, exiled to Montreal. A pitch perfect blend of music and mayhem - gloriously sleazy fun.
“A swift, satisfying salute to the slasher cinema of the ’70s.” Fangoria
