Hull Film Festival: Aniara
Sun 7th Jul 2019 @ 6:00 pm£6 – £8
Pella Kågerman | 2018 | Sweden/Denmark | 106 mins | No cert (TBC) Entry 18+ | Swedish with English subtitles | Drama / Sci-Fi
Based on a prescient epic poem by Swedish Nobel Prize winner Harry Martinson, Pella Kågerman and Hugo Lilja’s astounding and eerie ANIARA charts the fate of the human race after they have destroyed the planet.
One of several ships launched into space to start anew on Mars, ANIARA is designed to meet the needs of a species that has just consumed its birthplace: it’s a giant shopping mall. When an accident knocks the ship off course and disables its steering, the likelihood that these once-sanguine colonizers will ever reach their destination gradually begins to shrink.
A caustic portrait of humanity’s capacity for self-delusion, self-abuse, and consumption, ANIARA follows the ship’s passengers as they deal with uncertainty and dread but continue to indulge their appetites whenever and however they can. With a distinct feel of J G Ballard about it, Aniara is a stylish and thought-provoking take on societal breakdown.

“Swedish existential dread in outer space, with a suicidal AI, ritualistic orgies and a giant galactic shopping mall: this striking first feature is a work of daunting ambition.” – Wendy Ide, Screen International
