For their anniversary, unhappily married Laura (screenwriter Jackie van Beek) and Bruno (Damon Herriman) receive an unexpected present: a trip to a wilderness couples’ retreat run by eccentric sex guru Bjorg Rassmussen (What We Do in the Shadows creator Jemaine Clement). Will tantric dances and New Age orgies save their marriage? Set on a fictional Pacific island, this ingenious farce was improvised in a made-up language, with comedian Julia Davis writing hilarious English subtitles for the frequently naked cast’s dialogue.
This is a Gala screening part of the Edinburgh International Film Festival. Guests will be welcomed to the red carpet with live music and complimentary food and drinks. The film will be introduced by director Armagan Ballantyne, writer/actor Jackie van Beek, and subtitle writer Julia Davis.
