By 1983, David Cronenberg had already surprised fans and outsiders of genre cinema with films like Rabid or Scanners. What more could this Canadian with giant glasses offer? The answer was one of the most relevant films of the decade and a turning point in his budding career. Cronenberg portrays the descent into madness of the director of a small television channel who manages to tune in to an underground broadcast that only shows scenes of extreme violence. As he tries to discover the source of the signal, he begins to experience mysterious hallucinations. The formal audacity, the sharp philosophical interventions, the critique of a world invaded by screens and some of the most iconic images in the history of the genre make Videodrome a masterpiece and, in turn, a terrifyingly contemporary film. In this edition, the festival releases a book dedicated to the film.
