From the visionary mind of writer director Brandon Cronenberg (Antiviral), Possessor is a game-changing sci-fi thriller about elite, corporate assassin Tasya Vos (Andrea Riseborough).
Using brain-implant technology, Vos takes control of other people’s bodies to execute high profile targets. As she sinks deeper into her latest assignment, Vos becomes trapped inside a mind that threatens to obliterate her.
Why we love it: ‘This is a great example of imaginative high-concept sci-fi that uses extreme scenarios to get into big universal themes. If you’re okay with some gory violence and disturbing imagery, it’s a really meaty film to try and get your head around. The film exists in a place between dreams and reality, and Cronenberg is a master of creating this tone through striking imagery and intense performances from his great cast.’ - Paul Gallagher, GFT Programme Manager
