Maths meets millennial doom in one of the decade’s true originals. – Trevor Johnston (Time Out)
To celebrate our 3rd Anniversary, we’re hosting an ‘unofficial’ Berlinale opening party on Thurs 5th Feb. We’re screening the intense and hallucinogenic debut film by this year’s Berlinale jury president, Darren Aronofsky: ‘Pi’ (1998) – winner of the Directing Award at the Sundance Film Festival.
ABOUT THE FILM
“Darren Aronofsky’s 1998 directorial debut is an intense, hallucinogenic, and extreme exploration of madness and genius. Depicting one man’s obsession to construct a theoretical, numerical order out of chaos in an attempt to decipher a pattern to both the stock market and existence as a whole, Aronofsky has launched a sense-numbing expedition that simultaneously complies with and defies expectations of science-fiction cinema.
Aronofsky has masterfully fused mathematics and theology to create an eerie sci-fi world lying somewhere between Stanley Kubrick and Rod Serling.”
