What would you do if every stranger posed a threat to your very existence? Stephen Fingleton’s BAFTA-nominated directorial debut The Survivalist (2015; cert. 18) is a gripping thriller set in a bleak but beautiful post-apocalyptic world. In a time of starvation where the only option is kill or be killed, a survivalist lives off a small plot of land hidden deep in a forest. When two women seeking food and shelter discover his farm, he finds himself torn between suspicion and temptation.
With its unsettling raw soundtrack, stunning visuals and exceptional performances, this is a masterpiece by a true emerging talent.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Stephen Fingleton.
