Germany’s Moritz Bleibtreu directs and stars in Cortex, a multi-dimensional action piece screening as an Estonian premiere, part of Rebels with A Cause and PÖFF’s New German Cinema strand. A supermarket security guard struggles through nested elevated-genre plotlines and inventive set pieces.
“The look of the film gives a sense of submersion, disorientation and of diving deep into the subconscious.”
(Wendy Ide, Screen Daily)
After watching and experiencing CORTEX in the dark on the big screen you will be reminded of why we will always need movie theaters in our lives. A place where dreams truly come true – almost.
Director of photography Thomas W. Kiennast (THE DARK VALLEY, 3 DAYS IN QUIBERON) and Paul Andexel (Postproduction Producer) discuss the magic and technique of creating a visually stunning and mind-bending psychological thriller with a little help from post production.
In collaboration with ARRI Media.
Speakers: Thomas W. Kiennast, Paul Andexel
