The BanterFlix Film Society launch their Dark Hedges Movie Club within this year’s Belfast Film Festival with the Irish premiere of Jacob M Erwa’s tense psychodrama HomeSick.

The screening starts at 9pm on Friday 31st March at the Beanbag Cinema. Tickets cost £6 and can be booked through the Belfast Film Festival or Visit Belfast box-office.

Passion and insanity are dark neighbours!

Four walls, two people, one happiness that’s what ambitious young cello student Jessica (played by newcomer Esther Maria Pietsch) has in mind when she moves into a new apartment with her boyfriend Lorenz: but as the talented musician prepares to represent Germany in a prestigious musical competition, a sense of paranoia slowly descends upon her as she becomes convinced that she is the subject of harassment by someone within their apartment block and her suspicions lie with an elderly couple, who live above them.

As her paranoia escalates the strain begins to noticeably gnaw on Jessica’s everyday life and pretty soon her beautiful apartment becomes an oppressive prison of her own creation.

HomeSick recalls the claustrophobic tension of early Polanski and work of Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke as Erwa’s feature slowly descends into the realm of horror.
