This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Undergods is a bold debut feature by writer and director Chino Moya. Resembling a cross between Ben Wheatley’s High Rise and Terry Gilliam’s Brazil, it is a consistently surprising, beautifully designed and gloriously morbid trudge through the brutalist architecture of an imagined quasi-European post-apocalypse, with a merciless streak of gallows humour. 

“…an impressive, darkly thrilling debut”

The film is an anthology, telling several disparate, but loosely inter-connected fables; from the pair of filthy, ragged men hunting through ruined buildings for dead bodies who open the film, to a truly unforgettable karaoke party. These are pathetic, savage characters (played by a collection of familiar character actors) haunted by despair and destruction, whose stories follow a sense of macabre irony.

Moya’s background is in music videos and it’s clear he has an eye for striking visuals; the grungy, tactile production design belie its presumably modest budget and Undergods frequently looks better than many of its bigger-budget science fiction cousins. Throw in a throbbing, heady synth score, and this is an impressive, darkly thrilling debut. 

When you're booking your cinema ticket you'll notice the cinema has been divided into 'bubbles' in order to maintain social distancing. You won't be able to book part of a bubble, but you can book more than one. If you can’t find a combination of seats that suits your group please get in touch and we’ll try to help, although capacity is very limited in all screenings.

Each bubble may only be occupied by a single household: if you're visiting with people from another household they should book a separate bubble.

If you need to book one of our wheelchair seats please contact our box office team on 01382 432 444, or email dca@dca.org.uk.
