The raw sex appeal of gay club culture takes centre stage in this bizarre Queer horror-thriller from Yann Gonzalez.

Vanessa Paradis stars in her most entrancing role to date as the ferocious Anne, a producer of kaleidoscopic gay porn who uses her films to work through her own issues of heartbreak and self-identity. But when her male stars start turning up brutally murdered her work takes a bizarre turn and the lines between reality and erotic fantasy begin to blur. Featuring a killer soundtrack from French electro pop giants M83 and the colourful dreamscapes of every queer kid’s imagination, Yann Gonzalez creates an aesthetic that we are desperate to live in.

This film will be preceded by a screening of Christian Gordine's short RE:PRODUCTION.

This shivering slice of an avant-garde nightmare imagines a dystopian future in which male sexuality has been reduced to a necessary process more in common with a mass production ‘milking’ factory. Exploring themes of submission, control and the underworld, RE:PRODUCTION is a portal into the dark webs of the imagination.
