Following an ecological disaster that users in a new Ice Age, the remains of humanity occupies an enormous train that traverses the globe, even its oceans. At the front of the train the elite enjoy luxury while at the back the poor suffer in a slum-like prison. This audacious, intelligent adaptation of the 1982 graphic novel Le Transperceneige combines an all-star UK-US-Korean cast (Song Kang-ho, Tilda Swinton, Ewen Bremner, John Hurt, Ed Harris) with biting satire and comic book visual aplomb. A huge cult hit, still travelling on as a Netflix show.

The screening at 12:45 on 9th November at Vue Screen 12 will be presented with additional descriptive subtitles of non-dialogue audio. Visit our Accessible Screenings at LIFF 2023 page for more information and other accessible screenings at the festival.
