On Wellbeing Economies - "The Cleanse" (Saturday, October 19, 2:30pm)
In collaboration with Cinema Akil
Location: NYUAD Arts Center Screening Room, B101
On Wellbeing Economies is a film series selected by Raja’a Khalid. Khalid’s installation a.quiet.wave, commissioned by the NYUAD Art Gallery, is rooted in her research on color forecasting and consumer trends in the Yoga industry. The proposed film series invites us to view the new economy of spiritual and physical health through a critical lens. The series includes three films: The Cleanse, Yoga Hakwon, and A Cure for Wellness.
About The Cleanse:
Directed by: Bobby Miller
2016 | Canada, US | English | Comedy, Horror | 15+ | 81 min
Johnny Galecki (TV's "Big Bang Theory) plays Paul Berger, an unemployed, down and out, heartbroken man searching for happiness. When Paul sees an ad for a spiritual retreat promising to restart your life, he immediately signs up, hoping to cleanse himself and fix his broken life. But after only a few days, he discovers the cleanse is releasing more than just everyday toxins... a lot more. Also starring Anna Friel, plus Oliver Platt and Academy Award (R) Winner Anjelica Huston (Best Supporting Actress, Prizzi's Honor, 1985) as the leaders of the retreat, THE CLEANSE is a darkly humorous, weird, and soulful fantasy that examines the inner demons in all of us.
