Discover Bruce LaBruce’s reimagining of Pasolini’s Teorema!

London, today.
A refugee washes up naked in a suitcase on the bank of the Thames. The enigmatic, sexually fluid stranger introduces himself to a bourgeois, upper class family. He is invited to stay on as an employee. The Visitor soon seduces each member of the family in a series of explicit sexual encounters. He will turn their world upside down as they are able to redefine themselves in new, radical ways.

Director

Multi-disciplinary artist Bruce LaBruce has written and directed fourteen feature films such as ‘Gerontophilia’ which premiered in Venice Giornate Degli Autori 2013, ‘Pierrot Lunaire’ which won the Teddy Award at the Berlinale in 2014 or ‘Saint-Narcisse’ which closed Venice Giornate Degli Autori in 2020.

LaBruce has had a number of notable film retrospectives, including one at the TIFF/Bell Lighthouse under the auspices of the Toronto International Film Festival in 2014, one at MoMA in New York in 2015, and one at the Cinematheque Quebecois in Montreal in 2022. As a photographer he has had numerous gallery shows around the world, including a photo exhibit called “Obscenity” at La Fresh Gallery in Madrid which caused a national ruckus in Spain.

  • BERLINALE 2024 - PANORAMA
“A brilliantly depraved family affair. “The Visitor’s” retelling makes the original look positively tame by comparison.”
“Bruce LaBruce is Back with a spunky call-to-arms.”
“The Visitor is a love letter to Pasolini, penned with blood, sweat, and semen.”
