Screening as part of a LIFF Presents sci-fi night with Under the Skin on 9th May at Vue in The Light.

Arguably the greatest French director of her generation, Claire Denis (Beau Travail, Let the Sunshine In) makes her English language debut with the highly original and darkly disturbing sci-fi drama, High Life. Monte (Robert Pattinson) is a convict on a difficult mission at the edge of the solar system, kept in isolation and forced into a series of graphic experiments to father a daughter, he and his infant child must survive together as the spacecraft heads towards a black hole.

‘Denis has turned her sights on sci-fi, reconfiguring its familiar components to create a startlingly fresh engagement with the question of what it means to be human.’ The Guardian
