Transmissions presents: A HISTORY

8pm – 11pm
3 hours
10 Jul

Night two of Mothers, Fathers, Daughters, Sons sees the return of maestro and Transmissions favourite David Cronenberg (Crash, Videodrome, eXistenZ) to our humble screen as we proudly present his visceral and affecting blood-stained melodrama A History of Violence (2005). A deep cut from Cronenberg‘s oeuvre but one which can easily hold its own against his very best work, the film stars Viggo Mortensen as the mild-mannered manager of a small town diner whose quiet life explodes after a heroic act leads to revelations about the secret past he thought he had outrun, putting everything he cares about at risk. Maria Bello, Ed Harris, and William Hurt head up a superb supporting cast in a story of family, forgiveness, and reconciling who we were with who we hope to be. Don’t miss this emotional heavyweight from one of cinema’s greatest directors. “Ask him, how come he’s so good at killing people?” Tickets available via OutSavvy: Please be aware that this film contains scenes of very strong violence. Subtitles will be displayed throughout the film. Seating is a mixture of benches, backed chairs, bar stools, and floor space, and is first come, first served.
