Secret Film 4 - Only Lovers Left Alive (dir. Jim Jarmusch)

[UPDATED: 29 JULY 2017]

The Secret Film for August is Only Lovers Left Alive (dir. Jim Jarmusch).

Jim Jarmusch’s ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE tells the tale of two fragile and sensitive vampires, Adam and Eve, who have been lovers for centuries. ​Adam, a reclusive underground musician hiding out in the ruins of contemporary Detroit, despairs about human civilization’s decline, and worries about future survival. Eve, takes a longer view of history and is more optimistic. She leaves her home in the ancient city of Tangier to come to his side.​ ​As blood has been tainted by the zombies (humans), the formerly immortal Adam and Eve must secure uncontaminated blood from hospitals or they will perish.​ The couple's​ precarious footing is further threatened by the uninvited arrival of Eve’s carefree and uncontrollable little sister Ava.

Rated NC16, in English.

Runtime: 123min


This film is screened as part of the CINEMA series, a platform for The Substation's Discipline The City 2017 programme.

From hyperactive cities to languid villages or post-apocalyptic slums, CINEMA explores the urban conditioning of bodies by routines, ideologies or police control. Anchored by the opening film of Tokyo!, the four selected films follow protagonists as they struggle to rise above cyclic states of discipline. Through the sub-themes of Transformation, Anarchy, and Rebirth, the collection reveals how places shape their inhabitants.

The film's title will be revealed closer to the date of the screening.
