Guy Maddin, 2015, DCP, ov st fr & nl, 130

The result of Maddin’s interactive ‘Séances’ is a lengthy fever dream that journeys into the centre of the director’s own cinematic universe. Multi-layered, tongue-in-cheek and surreal: a torrent of images and scenes that takes its visitors on a hazy ride to the other side of the looking glass.

Laurie Anderson, 2015, DCP, ov st fr & nl, 75

What at first seems to be a portrait of Laurie Anderson’s musically gifted terrier Lolabelle, grows into a touching yet playful reflection on mortality, our present society and the death of her partner Lou Reed.

Nicolas Charlet & Bruno Lavaine, 2015, DCP, ov st ang, 59

High up in their spaceship circling the earth, a team of astronauts watches helplessly on as a pandemic turns the world population into sex-crazed lunatics. This new film by the pranksters of “Message à caractère informatif” dubs an amalgam of vintage porn clips with a hilarious new audio track.

Miguel Llansó, 2015, DCP, ov st ang, 68

The African plains are dominated by a hovering spacecraft.

Ben Wheatley, 2015, DCP, ov st fr & nl, 112

A young doctor moves into his new apartment in an enormous tower block, where the poor tenants stay on the lower floors, while the upper classes party it up on the top.

In the presence of director Ben Wheatley
