Female Human Animal, by Josh Appignanesi, will be part of the 16th FICM

Female Human Animal (2018), by Josh Appignanesi, will have its premiere in Mexico during the 16th edition of the Morelia International Film Festival (FICM). The film is based on the original idea of the Mexican novelist and writer Chloe Aridjis.

Shot in the real-life contemporary art world, Female Human Animal is a darkly romantic psychothriller about a creative woman disenchanted with what modern life has to offer her.

When writer Chloe Aridjis curates the Tate retrospective of the surrealist Leonora Carrington, an elusive, brooding man appears, seeming to offer more. But as she descends into a world of obsession, is she hunter or hunted?

With the Volksbuhne’s Marc Hosemann, Patrick O’Kane (Game of Thrones) and Angus Wright (Peepshow), appearances from cultural figures like Juliet Jacques, Marina Warner, Adam Thirlwell, Stewart Home and Tom McCarthy, scored by Andy Cooke with new music from Tearist and the iconic O.M.D., Female Human Animal also pays homage to its guiding feminist spirit, the striking artist and writer Leonora Carrington.
