Closing out our Neon Dreams International season, we are proud to present the Toronto premiere of the 4K restoration for what might just be the most WTF film that has ever graced our screen. Buckle up for an outrageous, once-in-a-lifetime ride through futuristic (that’s right, it’s set in 1989) Berlin.
“In his final acting role, legendary auteur Rainer Werner Fassbinder (clad in an iconic leopard skin suit) stars as hardboiled detective Jansen. In a neon-drenched futuristic dystopia ruled by a multimedia conglomerate called The Combine, Jansen is sent on a labyrinthine investigation when their headquarters is threatened with mass destruction by a phantom bomber. This essential cult classic features an hypnotic electronic score by Tangerine Dream’s Edward Froese as well as gleefully mind-bending production design.” (Film Comment)
This screening and others are made possible thanks to our wonderful sponsor Hollywood Suite. As always this will be a fully licensed event featuring a fabulous on-screen pre-show. Be sure to arrive early!
