ENTER THE VOID (2009) [Feature]

Canada,France,Germany,Italy (MIFF 2015 , Psychedelic!)
Director: Gaspar Noé

"A wild, hallucinatory mindfuck for adults … defies cinema convention in every way." – Screen International

Gaspar Noé (Love, MIFF 2015) cemented his standing as one of cinema's most divisive filmmakers with what he called a "psychedelic melodrama".

Drug dealer Oscar (Nathaniel Brown) promises his stripper sister Linda (Paz De La Huerta) that he will never leave her. When Oscar is killed in a police bust his spirit stays faithful to that promise, refusing to depart the world of the living.

Set in techno neon-coloured Tokyo, Noé's opus is an accomplishment of novel shooting techniques and ambitious special effects, the camera flying in and out of buildings, through walls, into altered states and even into the human body (including the fallopian tubes).

Winning Best Cinematography and the Special Jury Prize at the 2009 Sitges Film Festival but dividing critics, Enter the Void has since become a cult favourite.

This film contains strobe effects. Patrons affected should see a Front of House Manager.
