Synopsis

A darkness swirls at the centre of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the troupe’s artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist. Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up.

Director’s Statement

Each new film I make always feels like a first feature to me: something new emerges from the memories that forged my imaginary. When I was ten, in Cesenatico, a village on the Adriatic coast, I had the epiphany of Suspiria: I saw a poster hanging outside a closed movie theatre. Thirty-seven years later, here I am with my first (horror) film; this is thanks to the evocative power of Dario Argento and his ability to kindle imaginaries. Suspiria was created in 1976 and released in 1977. Our Suspiria is set in 1977, a crucial year for the feminist-feminine revolution.
