A childless couple in rural Iceland make an alarming discovery one day in their sheep barn. They soon face the consequences of defying the will of nature, in this dark and atmospheric folk tale, the striking debut feature from director Valdimar Jóhannsson.

When the trailer for Lamb was released it caused ripples of hype – but we insist you don’t view it, don’t read the reviews, just go in with as little prior knowledge as possible. Winner of the ‘Un Certain Regard - Prize of Originality’ at Cannes, this is a stunning film about grief and the things it makes us do. A folk horror film unlike any other.
