The critically-acclaimed 30 minute film will be followed by a 45 minute entertaining and insightful recorded Q&A.
Hosted by Mark Kermode, Pedro and Tilda discuss the inspirations they drew on for the film, how The Human Voice fits within the ‘Almodóvar oeuvre’, and what Pedro will be making next – including a great surprise for Tilda. Recorded under lockdown conditions, the discussion features visual references and clips to create a dynamic and interesting companion piece to the short film.
Following the Prime Minister’s announcement of a further lockdown in England, HOME will close temporarily from Thu 5 Nov 2020. We will be contacting ticketholders affected by the new rules this week. Please bear with us as our phonelines will be busier than usual. We will also post updates on our social media channels and website. Thanks for your patience.
Madness and melancholy intersect to thrilling effect as Almodóvar reimagines Jean Cocteau’s short play The Human Voice for an era in which isolation has become a way of life. Laws of desire become the rules of the game as Tilda Swinton’s unnamed woman paces and panics in a glorious Technicolor apartment where décor offers a window into her state of mind.
A short, sharp shot of distilled Almodóvar: passion, emotion, heartbreak, wit, and melodrama exquisitely bound up in a tale for our times.
The Human Voice was shot over nine days in Madrid in July and recently premiered to critical acclaim at the Venice Film Festival. It is Almodóvar’s first work in the English language.
