Midsommar – Director’s Cut

A disturbing and dark tale of manipulation, alt-religion, bizarre rituals and debauchery that might just leave you aghast.. ” 3AW

From the visionary mind of Ari Aster (director/writer of Hereditary) comes a dread-soaked cinematic fairytale where a world of darkness unfolds in broad daylight and this version – the director’s cut has even more meaning and more scenes to mess with your mind!

Dani and Christian are a young American couple with a relationship on the brink of falling apart. But after a family tragedy keeps them together, a grieving Dani invites herself to join Christian and his friends on a trip to a once-in-a-lifetime midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village. What begins as a carefree summer holiday in a land of eternal sunlight takes a sinister turn when the insular villagers invite their guests to partake in festivities that render the pastoral paradise increasingly unnerving and viscerally disturbing.

This critically acclaimed feature forms part of our “Bloody Winter” season of dark or bloody films together with our friends with their Bloody Shiraz Gin – Four Pillars. Very limited screening.
