Hull Film Festival: KNIFE+HEART
July 5 @ 8:30 pm - 10:15 pm£6 – £8
At Vue Cinema Hull: BUY TICKETS
In Paris in the summer of 1979, gay porn producer Anne sets out to film her most ambitious film yet, but her actors are picked off, one by one, by a mysterious serial killer.
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.
Starring Vanessa Paradis, Kate Moran, Nicolas Maury
