Beyond the Black Rainbow

Feature Film | CAN 2011 | 110' | OV

Scientist Dr. Barry Nyle ist as brilliant as he is sadistic. In his aseptically cold facility he holds captive young Elena. He can control her special psychic abilities. But during the course of his program of tests and torture he gradually loses control over his private life, his bleak memories and his mental sanity. When Elena finally manages to escape from her high-tech prison the obsessed doctor takes close on her heels. Panos Cosmatos, coming from a creative film dynasty, raises an image storm in this poetic SciFi  thriller the likes of which haven’t been seen for quite some time. His debut feature shows influences from Alejandro Jodorowsky, Stanley Kubrick and Dario Argento, but with a unique originality. BEYOND THE BLACK RAINBOW merges the tour de force performances by Michael Rogers and Eva Allan, the psychedelic primary colours and the atmospheric synthesizer soundtrack into a visionary, hallucinatory and nightmarish work of art.
