Director Michael O'Shea will be present at this screening.

A fiercely independent first feature, Michael O’Shea’s The Transfiguration took Cannes 2016 by storm. To escape his depressing life, orphaned African-American teen Milo has drenched himself in vampire lore, gleaned from horror classics including Nosferatu, Martin, Let the Right One In, The Lost Boys and Near Dark, and sublimated his morbid fantasies of sucking the blood of strangers. When he befriends the equally troubled Sophie, a clear course of action presents itself, providing liberation and tragic redemption. A nihilistic meditation on millennial angst and the defence mechanisms needed to protect the vulnerable spirit.
