PREVIEW
The Beast + Q&A with Bertrand Bonello
Institute of Contemporary Arts
The Beast (La Bête), dir. Bertrand Bonello, Canada, France 2024, English, French with English subtitles, 146 min. 15.


In the near future emotions have become a threat. Gabrielle decides to purify her DNA in a machine that will immerse her in her past lives and rid her of any strong feelings. But then she meets Louis, and although he seems dangerous, she feels a powerful connection to him as if she has known him forever.

Drawing inspiration from Henry James haunting ghost story The Beast in the Jungle, the latest film from audacious French filmmaker Bertrand Bonello is an odyssey of past lives and loves that expertly melds melodrama and science fiction.

This special preview screening will be followed by an in-person Q&A with filmmaker Bertrand Bonello, hosted by ICA Cinema curator Nicolas Raffin.
