Young lives are forever changed when a gunman opens fire in a Canadian school, determined to kills as many women as possible.
A dramatisation of the tragic Montreal Massacre, the events of the day are documented through the eyes of two student witnesses and the perpetrator, with the horrors of the carnage leaving a legacy far beyond the shooting itself

Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Sicario) and shot in stark black-and-white by Pierre Gill, Polytechnique is a profound achievement from one of contemporary cinema's most original directors.
Special Features:
  • Presented in High Definition
  • Includes both the English and French language versions of the film
  • Polytechnique: Ce qu’il reste du 6 décembre (2019, 52 mins): made for the thirtieth anniversary of the Montréal massacre, Judith Plamondon's documentary gives voice to the survivors and witnesses of the event and is narrated by Karine Vanasse, actress and co-producer of Polytechnique
  • Trailer
  • **FIRST PRESSING ONLY** Illustrated booklet featuring a new essay on the film by Jessica Kiang and a look at the career of Denis Villeneuve by Justine Smith

Excellent thank you. :)

I see that the specifications / special features are still TBC. BFI has been responsible for some tremendous disc releases recently (easily comparable to the likes of Criterion, Arrow, Eureka et al). Looking forward to seeing what this disc is like.
