Crimes of the future by David Cronenberg in Contemporanea

Today, November 15, we will present in the Contemporanea section David Cronenberg's Crimes of the future starring Viggo Mortensen, Kristen Stewart and Lea Seydoux.


As the human species adapts to a synthetic environment, the body undergoes new transformations and mutations. With his partner Caprice, Saul Tenser, a famous artist and performer, publicly displays the metamorphosis of his organs in avant-garde performances. Timlin, an investigator for the National Organ Registry, obsessively follows their movements.


The Contemporanea 2022 section brings together works that tell the dark side of auteurs and filmmakers who, through visual and narrative experimentation, push the filmic beyond by charting new cinematic geographies. This year in addition to this masterpiece, we will also present Jordan Peele's Nope, Alex Garland's Men, Valdimar Jòhannsson's Lamb, and Claudio Cupellini's The Land of the Children. Titles that are distant from each other but represent palpitating glimmers in contemporary cinema, because taking up the Deleuzian teaching, "The cinematic image gathers the essentials of the other arts, it is its heir, it is almost the mode of employment of the other images that converts into power what was only possibility."
