Film Details


France, Greece | 2011 | Yorgos Lanthimos


The new film from the director of Dogtooth is as strange as that Oscar-nominated movie but perhaps even more chilling and haunting. Alps tells of four people who make their living by impersonating individuals who have recently died, role-playing in order to help grieving survivors gradually come to terms with the loss of their loved ones. Blending absurdist comedy with human tragedy, this tale of surrogates is truly one of a kind. “Puzzling and provocative…Has a lingering power and an effect that is thrillingly difficult to define.” –Time Out New York.

93 min. Adults only! Subtitles.

Imported 35mm print; special admission $10; members $8; age 25 & under $6 (also second-film price on 11/4); no passes, twofers, or radio winners. Special thanks to Films We Like, Toronto (Michael Boyuk).
