Visible Cinema: Vortex (CTBC)

Monday 16 May (17.40)

Dedicated 'to all those whose brains will decompose before their hearts', Vortex is Gaspar Noé’s most daring and moving film, confronting universal fears around dementia and death.

An elderly couple (played by Françoise Lebrun and horror maestro Dario Argento) spend their days in a Paris apartment. As the screen splits and the mood blackens, we share their anxieties: everyday tasks become more challenging, forgetfulness shifts to something more troubling. Their son (Alex Lutz) is ill-prepared to care for them as they enter the vortex of mental and physical degeneration.

Please note this event begins at the stated time (17.40), there are no adverts or trailers.

All tickets £6.50
