BERLIN SYNDROME (with director Q&A!)
May 28 @ 5:30 pm
Q&A with director Cate Shortland via Skype!
“Incredibly effective, while offering a perspective that these kinds of films usually lack. It gets to know the innocent, while rendering the evil banal.” – The Playlist
“As the stakes are upped, Shortland doles out well-earned scares and shocking moments of brutal, bloody violence that keep up the momentum.” – Indiewire
“Palmer and Shortland keep audiences on the edge of their seat.” – RogerEbert.com
While holidaying in Berlin, Australian photographer, Clare, meets Andi, a charismatic local man and there is an instant attraction between them. A night of passion ensues. But what initially appears to be the start of a romance, takes an unexpected and sinister turn when Clare wakes the following morning to discover Andi has left for work and locked her in his apartment. An easy mistake to make, of course, except Andi has no intention of letting her go again. Ever.
Dir. Cate Shortland. 116 min.
