Part thriller, part character study, Bullhead is an astoundingly stylish, muscular crime drama about gangsters and farmers, set against the backdrop of the Belgian cattle hormones mafia. It's a tale of friendship and loyalty, betrayal and lost innocence. This is a film about cows and police informers, bulls and headbutts. Young Limburg cattle farmer Jacky Vanmarsenille is approached by an unscrupulous veterinarian to make a shady deal with a notorious West Flemish beef trader, but the assassination of a federal policeman and a mysterious secret from Jacky’s past set in motion a chain of events with far-reaching consequences. Leading man Matthias Schoenaerts underwent two years of physical training and gained 27 kg to prepare for the role of Jacky, who, after a tragic event in his childhood, gets addicted to testosterone injections, turning him into a tormented muscle machine. As The Hollywood Reporter notes, “Director Roksam depicts a world of men into which this man cannot enter; of animals and flesh and impotence; of the very essence of maleness in the agricultural world.”

Guest expected to attend film screenings on 1/6 and 1/8
