Pattinson and Dafoe in the psychological horror drama ‘The Lighthouse’
As part of the FESTIVAL SELECTION, curated to showcase the most spectacular cinema of Europe and the whole world, the audience will get a chance to see the writer-director Robert Eggers’ second feature The Lighthouse. This film starring Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson will be screened on Sunday, October 20, at 19:00.
Robert Eggers secures his position as one of cinema’s most exciting contemporary auteurs. His second feature The Lighthouse is as mesmerizing as it is otherworldly. Lighthouse examines the dark impulses of hardscrabble men embroiled in a complex game of power dynamics. “Nothing good can happen when two men are left alone in a giant phallus,” Eggers remarks. The film won the FIPRESCI Cannes Film Festival critics’ award for best first or second features in Directors’ Fortnight and Critics Week.
Following The Witch’s smash debut at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, the instant horror classic catapulted Eggers to the front ranks of American auteurs. After winning the Directing Prize at Sundance, it was released to glowing reviews, terrifying audiences around the world.
