Superprime Produces The First North American Presentation of Yorgos Lanthimos’ ‘Bleat’ at NYFF

The sold-out premiere of Bleat at the New York Film Festival was accompanied by Yorgos Lanthimos and Emma Stone, whose presence was made possible by SAG-AFTRA granting the project an interim agreement.

Designed to never be presented with a recorded soundtrack, the 35mm screening instead features a live accompaniment by a talented ensemble of musicians and a choir with compositions by J.S. Bach, Knut Nystedt, and Toshio Hosokawa. The film explores themes like loneliness and connection; death, love and desire and human and animal interaction.

The project was made together by the Greek National Opera and NEON, and was supported by a grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
