Rotterdam's KINO cinema welcomes film enthusiasts to the preview party of Beau is Afraid, the latest work by renowned director Ari Aster, complete with a cocktail, DJ, and decorations reflecting the film's unique style.
Beau is Afraid preview party
On 6 May 2023, immerse yourself in the Rotterdam preview party of Beau is Afraid at KINO, a truly distinctive cinematic experience. Following his two successful indie films, Hereditary and Midsommar, Ari Aster was granted the opportunity to realise his long-cherished dream project.
A unique cinematic experience
Beau is Afraid is challenging to describe, as it combines various elements such as comedy, fear, absurdity, relatability, and alienation, all in an entirely original manner. The film may elicit diverse reactions from the audience, but one thing is certain – you will never listen to Mariah Carey's Always Be My Baby the same way again.
After the sudden death of his mother, gentle but paranoid Beau must confront his greatest fears as he embarks on an epic, Kafkaesque journey to attend the funeral. The surreal and bold film features an impressive cast, including Oscar winner Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Ryan, Michael Gandolfini, and Parker Posey.
