From A24 and director Gaspar Noé comes Climax, a hypnotic and hallucinatory portrayal of a party that descends into delirium over the course of a night.

In the mid 90’s, 20 urban dancers join together for a three-day rehearsal in a closed-down boarding school located at the heart of a forest to share one last dance. They then make one last party around a large sangria bowl. Quickly, the atmosphere becomes charged and a strange madness will seize them the whole night. If it seems obvious to them that they have been drugged, they neither know by who nor why. And it’s soon impossible for them to resist to their neurosises and psychoses, numbed by the hypnotic and the increasing electric rhythm of the music. While some feel in paradise, most of them plunge into hell.

Packing a punch as potent as any of Noe’s other films, Climax is yet another striking offering from the Enter the Void director.
