Advance screening of Heartbeast in Redi and workshops about film script writing and rap music

See one of the most anticipated films of the autumn, the brave and pulsating Heartbeast, in a preview at Redi’s Bio Rex. Registration via Webropolis. Monday 17.10.

Elina (Elsi Sloan), who dreams of being a rapper, moves to the south of France with her mother and is instantly stunned by her half-sister, the talented ballerina Sofia (Carmen Kassovitz). When Elina realises that she is just a distraction for Sofia, her love becomes obsessive – with dangerous consequences. Heartbeast is Aino Suni’s (Ei koskaan enää) brave and pulsating psychological drama about toxic love and unbearable growing pains. The film’s music is by a top-notch professional, Jean-Benoît Dunckel from the legendary band Air, whose music has previously been heard in films such as Lost in Translation, Virgin Suicides and Summer of 85. The French rap star Chilla and Finnish artists Yeboyah and Mercedes were involved in creating the film’s rap world. 

The screening will be attended by director-writer Aino Suni.
