“Crimes of the Future”, written and directed by David Cronenberg, was shortlisted for the main competition in Cannes, and also released the first trailer, thrilling + exciting!
“Crimes of the Future” has a lavish cast, starring Viggo Mortensen, Léa Seydoux, Kristen Stewart, and more, exploring the not-so-distant future where humanity is learning to adapt to its synthetic environment.
This evolution took humans beyond their natural state and began to deform, changing their biological makeup.
Some embrace the infinite potential of transhumanism, while others try to rein in it. Either way, the “accelerated evolution syndrome” is spreading rapidly.
Saul Tenser, a beloved performance artist, has undergone accelerated evolution syndrome, and unexpected new organs have grown in his body.
Together, Tenser and his partner, Caprice, turned the process of removing these organs into a spectacle—operating in real-time in theaters to wow its loyalists.
But with government and strange subcultures both concerned, Tenser is forced to consider what will be his most shocking performance yet.
