Climax at the Vic Theatre

From the mind of controversial auteur Gasper Noé (Enter the Void) comes his latest attempt to push the boundaries of cinema. Loosely based on a true story, Climax focuses on a French dance troupe in 1996.

From the mind of controversial auteur Gasper Noé (Enter the Void) comes his latest attempt to push the boundaries of cinema. Loosely based on a true story, Climax focuses on a French dance troupe in 1996. After a gruelling rehearsal period at a secluded boarding school, the dancers decide to unwind with a party on their last night. Things quickly take a turn for the worse when the punch gets spiked with LSD causing tempers and paranoia to explode amongst the company.

Featuring a cast of professional dancers and visionary cinematography, Gasper Noé’s hallucinatory investigation into the rivalries, attractions, and conflicts that form within tribes is one of the most unforgettable cinematic experiences in years.

The annual Victoria International Jewish Film Festival (VIJFF) — launched in 2015 in Victoria, BC, Canada — aims to enhance our audiences’ enjoyment of films with Jewish themes and related content from around the globe. We celebrate these films as explorations of Jewish culture and as artistic expressions of broadly shared human values.

The Festival’s main objectives are:

  • to exhibit films with Jewish themes which are not readily available at commercial cinemas;
  • to create a sense of community by bringing together film lovers who are interested in, or wish to know more about, Jewish culture;
  • to enhance appreciation of film artistry in a variety of different genres and styles;
  • to provide a venue for independently produced films that explore the complex realities of Jewish cultures, history, religion and identity around the world.

The Victoria International Jewish Film Festival is a project of the Jewish Community Centre of Victoria, British Columbia. The Centre has been providing programs and services in Victoria and throughout Vancouver Island since 1988. The Centre welcomes the community to its 4th Annual Victoria International Jewish Film Festival, to be held November 3 – 6, 2018 at The Vic Theatre on 808 Douglas St.
