ENCOUNTER OF ANOTHER KIND

Our lives are made up of encounters, of people, of paths intersecting, of small talk and highbrow dialogue. What could be any more ordinary? Except, of course, if you’re fans, like we are, of saucers and big organs, Spielberg-style. At Court Métrange, you’ve grown accustomed to the Fantastic and fantasticality worming their way into the goings-on of the everyday. Be it romantic, professional, awe-inspiring or deadly, each of these shorts lets us experience that once-in-a-lifetime encounter, and although it may not change our lives forever, for our protagonists, it’s a whole ‘nother story.

HARD CORE

Who exactly is this elusive soulmate sharing our most intimate space? Whether ours or that of the Other, the body cleaves to the endless gamut of metaphors involving this twosome. Devoured, altered, mutilated or fantasized, the body brims with a behemoth terrain wherein pain and pleasure coalesce.

The filmmakers behind these five globe-spanning shorts are out to settle the score with corporeal coercion, and have whipped up a titillating dish of vengeance bound to hit every spot. A two-timing, mind-boggling screening ballsy enough to heave you into an innard journey through the recesses of fluid mechanics. Heads up!
