Hull Film Festival: Knife+Heart
Fri 5th Jul 2019 @ 8:30 pm£6 – £8
Yann Gonzalez | 2018 | France/Mexico/Switzerland | 102 mins | Cert 18 | French, Spanish with English subtitles | Drama / Mystery / Horror / LGBTQ+
Yann Gonzalez’s deliriously kinky queer horror thriller stars Vanessa Paradis and is set in 1970s Paris, following the dramatic breakdown of a relationship and the messy aftermath. Paradis plays gay porn producer Anne, who, after a break-up, launches herself into her latest and most ambitious film production. But as shooting gets underway, one of her stars is brutally murdered. Soon it becomes terrifyingly clear that a homicidal maniac is intent on bumping off the cast, one by one.
An erotically kitsch love letter to European Giallo, American grindhouse cinema and ’70s gay pornography, the film was shot on 35mm and is accompanied by a throbbing soundtrack from M83.
This screening is part of Film Feels: Obsession, a UK-wide cinema season, supported by the National Lottery and BFI Film Audience Network. Explore all films and events at www.filmfeels.co.uk

“This magical, erotic, disco-tinged horror-thriller is like cinematic candy.” – Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times
