High Life

by Claire Denis Gala Premieres

A spaceship is floating in the depths of the universe, far beyond our solar system. Lone soul Monte belongs to a group of inmates who have escaped the death penalty by agreeing to be guinea pigs in a dangerous experiment. Monte and his baby daughter, Willow, who was born under mysterious circumstances, are currently the only conscious travellers on board. In his role as a father, Monte slowly but surely begins to experience what love really is. Willow is growing up, becoming a girl and then a young woman. Together, father and daughter approach a black hole, where time and space cease to exist. With HIGH LIFE, her astounding first foray into the world of science fiction, ZFF Honorary Award winner Claire Denis casts all expectations to the wind.
