The Shock of the Future

Fri. 13 September 2019 — Thu. 19 September 2019


Paris, 1978. In a predominantly male music industry, Ana uses new electronic machines to make herself heard, creating a new sound that will mark the decades to come: the music of the future.

Featuring a tremendous lead performance from Alma Jodorowsky, director Marc Collin’s brilliant film about electronic music and cultural patriarchy is a love letter to the unacknowledged women pioneers of the French electronic music movement.

Featuring an incredible soundtrack, including music by The Human League, Throbbing Gristle, and Clara Luciani (who also stars in the film).

Shock of the Future is a feel-good tribute to a movement that had a major influence on contemporary pop music.

Fri. 27 September 2019 — Sat. 5 October 2019

Sensoria Music and Film Festival returns for 2019, presenting a unique mix of live performance, film screenings, installations, exhibitions and music industry activity.


Converted from a 1930s art deco car showroom, the Showroom is one of the biggest independent cinemas in Europe – and we'd reckon one of the best. Between the screens and the bar, it's easy to while away whole days here.
