Renowned Canadian Director David Cronenberg spoke recently about his experience of filming in Greece his latest and highly anticipated movie “Crimes Of The Future”.
Cronenberg, one of the principal originators of what is commonly known as the body horror genre, shot the film in Greece in the Summer of 2021.
The upcoming movie, starring, among others, Viggo Mortensen, Lea Seydoux and Kristen Stewart, signals the return of the renowned Director to his sci-fi and body-horror roots.
The story, which he wrote back in 2000, takes place in a future world where the post-humanist “Accelerated Evolution Syndrome” spreads rapidly, causing mixed reactions through the population, as some accept the infinite possibilities of it, while others continuously try to suppress it.
Speaking to the Greek Film Commission he admits that when he first wrote the screenplay for Crimes of The Future two decades ago, its location was ambiguous.
