A special preview screening of the new adaptation of J G Ballard’s High-Rise
From director Ben Wheatley, one of the best British filmmakers working today, and based on the classic 1975 novel by J G Ballard comes a unique and dazzling vision of a dystopian Britain on the brink of social meltdown. Featuring a stellar cast including Tom Hiddleston, Luke Evans, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller and Elisabeth Moss, High-Rise is a one of a kind cinematic event that is set to be one of the cultural talking points of 2016.

this special preview screening, which is followed by a Q&A with Director Ben Wheatley (Sightseers, A Field in England), producer and long-term associate of Ballard, Jeremy Thomas and the author’s daughter Bea Ballard.
