She Is Conann

Tue 14 Nov 22:45

Hellhound Rainer (Elina Löwensohn) roams through the abyss, narrating the six lives of Conan (Claire Duburcq, Christa Théret, Sandra Parfait, Agata Buzek, Nathalie Richard and Françoise Brion). Conan is perpetually put to death by her own future, through different eras, myths and ages; from childhood, as a slave to Sanja (Julia Riedler) and her barbarian horde, through to her accession to the heights of cruelty on the threshold to our world…

Every year we like to make sure there’s a film in the programme that’s likely to split opinion, and we suspect She Is Conann might be the one for 2023! An archly stylish film, this trippy odyssey is a true re-imagining of a well-known hero as we’ve never seen him, her or them before. Brutal, camp, sexy, and down-right intoxicating, this is a journey into hell like no other.
