PROGRAMME

Influencer

TICKETS

Although the image she projects on social media is confident and assured, Madison’s reality is far different: having been left on her own by her boyfriend her trip to Thailand seems lonely and without any excitement – that is until she meets CW, a solo traveller who really knows how to make the most of a trip. Soon the two are inseparable and CW offers to show Madison her best surprise yet – an entirely empty off-the-grid island…what could go wrong?

Taking the tropes of classic psycho-thrillers such as Single White Female and updating them to the social media generation; Kurtis Davis Hader’s unpredictable thriller revels in pulling the carpet from under its audience time and time again – with mounting high stakes and piling ever-more violent acts, Influencer will take you on a wild and entertaining ride that will have you questioning your next potential holiday friendship and who they appear to be.

  • Director:  Kurtis Davis Hader
  • USA 2022 | 92m
  • With Emily Tennant, Sara Canning, Cassandra Naud
friday march 10 – 21:30

The Devil Conspiracy

TICKETS

A powerful biotech company has finally mastered the technology to clone history’s most influential people through a single drop of blood. But behind its benevolent façade lies a sinister Satanic cult who has just gotten their hand on the Shroud of Turin with the intention of cloning Jesus Christ as an offering to the Devil – our only hope lays in Archangel Michael who comes to Earth to stop the devil’s plan once and for all.

Fans of Hellbound, Constantine, End of Days and other over-the-top Satanic action films will find much to enjoy in its admittedly tailor-made for midnight movie that plays its ludicrous plot entirely straight, winning the audience in the process. Full of eye-popping moments and mind-blowing dialogue, this throwback to the 90’s B-Movie acts as a reminder of those Friday night rentals at the video store and proves that nothing can stand in the way of a good satanic conspiracy.

  • Director | Director Nathan Frankowski
  • USA 2022 | 111m
  • With Alice Orr-Ewing, Joe Doyle, Joe Anderson

Medusa Deluxe

TICKETS

“You Pantene Pro-V cunt!”. The competition has started, scissors and claws are out and the library is open, officially. Obsessed hairdressers have gathered for the most thrilling contest to show off their fabulous coiffures on the runway. But death strikes one of the competitors… The jealous rivals, the ex-lover, the models, even the security guards, everyone is a suspect. Shablam!

After its Locarno world premiere, Thomas Hardiman’s debut feature has been ravishing the festival circuit with its fierce humour, showy cinematography – neon lights and one-shot fluidity – and groovy tone. Do you need more murder mysteries? More Glass Onion extravaganza, more Death on the Nile realness? Of course, you do, and while you are there, put some crazy loud hairspray all over it, and voilà! Medusa Deluxe is here to serve you some demented and witted whodunnit, with grace, excess and sideburns!

Alma Viva

TICKETS

Portugal, a picturesque village in the heart of the mountains. Like every summer, Salomé (Lua Michel) comes here for the holidays to visit her beloved grandmother. Only this summer the matriarch, who was considered a witch, suddenly dies. Over her funeral the family is divided, while Salomé, a silent observer to the ordeal, begins to suspect she is haunted by the sorceress’ spirit.

World premiered at Critic’s Week in Cannes 2022, and now representing Portugal at the 2023 Academy awards, Cristèle Alves Meira’s female driven debut feature is an ode to rural life, with a dash of folk horror and even a pinch of humour. Brilliantly directing her own daughter in the leading role, and shooting the film in her childhood village, she delicately paints with rawness and magical realism, the story of traditions, grief, chaos, witchcraft and the very real brutality of human relationships.

  • Director Cristèle Alves Meira
  • Portugal, Belgium, France 2022 | 85m
  • With Lua Michel, Ana Padrão, Jacqueline Corado
sunday march 12 – 19:15

Memory of Water

Veden vartija

TICKETS

In year 72 of the “New Time”, the world has changed; water is rare, the future seems hopeless. Under strict military watch, a small community in the Scandinavian Union survives. The town’s tea master Noria has inherited her father’s secret and with it must now lead the fight against the repressive government, in humanity’s quest for water.

Based on the acclaimed dystopian novel by Emmi Itäranta, described as being “in the vein of Ursula K. Le Guin”, and adapted for the big screen by Finland’s wild child of genre cinema, screenwriter Ilja Rautsi (Hatching), Saara Saarela’s Memory of Water – her fourth feature – is a poignant social commentary as well as a surprising and dangerous journey, held by a stunning cast of the finest Finnish rising stars, and coupled with a highly creative production design. Science (not so) Fiction has never felt more intimate and in ways unsettlingly familiar.

  • Director Saara Saarela
  • Finland 2022 | 101m
  • With Saga Sarkola, Mimosa Willamo, Lauri Tilkanen
