Agata Buzek is in the cast of the sci-fi adventure »HIGH LIFE«, written directed by Claire Denis.
It is Denis’ first English language film. Apart from Denis, her long-time collaborator Jean-Pol Fargeau and novelist Nick Laird co-wrote the screenplay for the film. The film stars Robert Pattinson, Patricia Arquette, and Mia Goth in lead roles. The cast has added Juliette Binoche, Lars Eidinger and Ewan Mitchell.
The film focuses on a group of criminals who are tricked into believing they will be freed if they participate in a mission to travel on a spaceship towards a black hole to find an alternate energy source while being sexually experimented on by the scientists on board.
Principal photography will take place in Cologne, Germany. Denis has tapped visual artist Olafur Eliasson to design of the black hole. The original score and sound design comes from her long-time musical collaborator, Stuart Staples.
