Climax Overview

From director Gaspar No comes a hypnotic, hallucinatory, and ultimately hair-raising depiction of a party that descends into delirium over the course of one wintry night.

In Climax, a troupe of young dancers gather in a remote and empty school building to rehearse. Following an unforgettable opening performance lit by virtuoso cinematographer Benot Debie and shot by No himself, the troupe begins an all-night celebration that turns nightmarish as the dancers discover they've been pounding cups of sangria laced with potent LSD.

Tracking their journey from jubilation to chaos and full-fledged anarchy, No observes crushes, rivalries, and violence amid a collective psychedelic meltdown.
