High Life Premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival!

Claire Denis’ highly anticipated Robert Pattinson starring Sci-Fi High Life, is set to make its world premiere at TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival). The movie is Denis’ first English language film and takes place aboard a spacecraft piloted by death row prisoners on a decades-long suicide mission to enter and harness the power of a black hole.

The movie chronicles the unsettling journey with masterful precision and showcases the direct juxtapositions of intimacy and violence. Toronto International Film Festival runs from the 6th to the 16th of September. High Life will be shown next at the San Sebastián Film Festival for its European premiere, followed by the prestigious New York Film Festival for its US premiere.

According to Film Inc, “High Life features some of the most unsettling passages Denis has ever filmed, as well as moments of the greatest delicacy and tenderness.” Along with Pattinson, the movie stars Juliette Binoche, André Benjamin, and Mia Goth.
