The Work and Inspiration of Gaspar Noé

Cinéma Viscéral: Enter The Void (2009) – a 35mm presentation

Hoezo in KINO

Gaspar Noé ghostly trip through the underbelly of Tokyo returns to KINO on 35mm. This wholly unique POV film takes the viewer on a disembodied journey when an American drug dealer gets killed by police in a botched exchange and finds himself in limbo searching for a way to connect back to the living world in search for redemption and resurrection. Noé takes his free flowing camerawork to a new level and creates his own version of what the afterlife might entail, with colourful sets, ‘wink-cuts’ and of course some raunchy voyeurism for good measure. This might be Noé’s version of ’the trip’ the astronaut experiences in Kubrick’s 2001 and takes you on a journey you won’t soon forget. English and Japanese language with English subtitles.

This psychedelic tour of life after death is seen entirely from the point of view of Oscar, a young American drug dealer and addict living in Tokyo with his prostitute sister, Linda. When Oscar is killed by police during a bust gone bad, his spirit journeys from the past – where he sees his parents before their deaths – to the present – where he witnesses his own autopsy – and then to the future, where he looks out for his sister from beyond the grave.

To celebrate Noé’s latest film Vortex and his unique and darkly twisted oeuvre, KINO presents a selection of his own work and the films that inspired him. A divergent collage of cinematic outings that influenced his work: from the masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey (on 70mm!) and the anti-fascist shock cinema of Pasolini’s Salò to the ‘giallo’ chillers of Dario Argento. Join us in taking a deep dive into the visceral cinematic world that shaped the work of this singular director. Strap in, it’s going to be one hell of a ride. Trailer: Baris Azman
