Saul Tenser is a much-loved performance artist who has embraced Accelerated Evolution Syndrome, sprouting new and unexpected organs in his body. Together with his partner Caprice, Tenser has made the removal of these organs a spectacle for his loyal followers to admire theater in real time. But with both government and a strange subculture taking notice, Tenser is forced to think about what would be his most shocking performance of all. “
Crimes of the future Cronenberg will reunite with A History of Violence, oriental promises and A dangerous method actor Viggo Mortensen who will play alongside Lea Seydoux (No time to die) and Kristen Stewart (Charlie’s Angels). The recordings will take place this summer in Athens, Greece.
