Our Gaspar Noe Season culminates with his best-known feature, the neon-psychedelic Enter The Void.

Controversial, totally unique and critically debated, Enter The Void seeks to emulate the effects of DMT, a psychoactive substance associated with death, after-life and out-of-body experiences. Referencing the Tibetan Book of the Dead, Enter the Void takes the audience on a hallucinogenic trip within the streets of Tokyo's urban environment.

Set in the neon-lit nightclub environments of Tokyo, the story follows Oscar, a young American drug dealer who gets shot by the police, but continues to watch subsequent events during an out-of-body experience.


Gaspar Noé is one of the very few directors who is actually trying to do something new with the medium, battling at the boundaries of the possible. [ ] Enter the Void is utterly original film-making

Exceptional. This is an artist who’s trying to show us something we haven’t seen before.
