MONSTER FEST Presents in association with Umbrella Films will release THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT Complete & Uncut to select New Zealand cinemas on Thursday April 4th.
THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT had its Australian Premiere at Monster Fest Travelling Sideshow in Perth last year and went on to play two sold-out festival screenings at last November’s Monster Fest VII: The Homecoming in Melbourne, where it was also awarded ‘Best Director’ at the closing night awards ceremony.
Lars von Trier’s disturbing drama follows the highly intelligent Jack (Matt Dillon) over a span of 12 years and introduces the murders that define Jack’s development as a serial killer. Taking place from Jack’s point of view as he postulates each murder as an artwork in itself. Inevitably as police intervention draws near, he takes greater and greater risks in his attempt to create the ultimate masterwork.
Despite recent international controversy and a censored version being released theatrically overseas, Umbrella Films remain committed to presenting Lars von Trier’s artistic work uncompromised by unleashing the Complete and UNCUT version to cinemas on April 4th.
