|A History of Violence|
To celebrate the release of his extraordinary new film A History of Violence
, ACMI salutes David Cronenberg with this comprehensive retrospective that spans a thirty-five year career.
"Man-machine interfacer, new-flesh apostle, techno-porn merchant, director David Cronenberg has devoted his career to experiments in transfiguration" Village Voice
Utterly unique and ferociously coherent, Cronenberg's visceral body of cinematic work consistently explores repressed sexuality and its manifestations; fantasy and deception; self-identify and body horror; auto-fetishism and morbid hedonism.
