Pathé has announced that the new short film, The Human Voice, directed by Spanish auteur Pedro Almodóvar and starring Tilda Swinton, will be launched on 7 November 2020 at a special Event Screening in cinemas across the UK.

Madness and melancholy intersect to thrilling effect as Almodóvar reimagines Jean Cocteau’s short play The Human Voice for an era in which isolation has become a way of life. Laws of desire become the rules of the game as Tilda Swinton’s unnamed woman paces and panics in a glorious Technicolor apartment where décor offers a window into her state of mind. A short, sharp shot of distilled Almodóvar: passion, emotion, heartbreak, wit, and melodrama exquisitely bound up in a tale for our times.

The film will be followed by a pre-recorded Q&A with Almodóvar and Swinton hosted by film critic Mark Kermode.

The Event will have repeat screenings nationwide from 8 November.

THE HUMAN VOICE was shot over nine days in Madrid in July and recently premiered to critical acclaim at the Venice Film Festival. It is Almodóvar’s first work in the English language.

Writer/Director Pedro Almodóvar is one of Spain’s most celebrated filmmakers with numerous accolades to his name including an Academy Award®, four BAFTAs, numerous Goyas and over 100 further wins and nominations. His credits include WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN, ALL ABOUT MY MOTHER, VOLVER and most recently PAIN AND GLORY.
