EXIT TO CLOSE CAMERA LUCIDA
Sunday 10th July, 2011
The full programme for Montreal’s Fantasia Festival has gone live, and with it details of EXIT’s world premiere as part of their Camera Lucida spotlight.
Programmer Simon Laperrière has said that the first Camera Lucida was based on a question. “What is genre cinema today? And to answer it, I said we have to look at genre film in its most iconoclastic form, in all its differences.”
Last year – the first of the programme – included Quentin Duplex’s killer tire movie Rubber and Hirokazu Koreeda’s poetic, absurd Air Doll. This year, it opens with William Eubank’s avant-garde sci-fi Love...
...and we’re pleased to say EXIT has been chosen to be Camera Lucida’s closing night film.
The festival’s outline of EXIT begins like this: “According to legend, there exists at the heart of the city a door that opens upon a parallel universe. No one knows its origin or where it leads.” And they go on to call it “one of the best science fiction films of the year, merging a small budget with big ideas.”
