BBC To Premiere Jonathan Glazer’s Strasbourg 1518

It’s nearly seven years since Jonathan Grazer unleashed Scarlett Johansson on the Glaswegian population with his superb Under The Skin. As we patiently wait for his next feature film, the British filmmaker has been busy in other areas of film making especially the short films. Back in 2019 on 27th October The Fall, a 6-minute unannounced intervention was aired on BBC2. Later this month we’ll get his next short film

The World Premiere of STRASBOURG 1518, the latest film from Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth, Under The Skin, The Fall) will take place on BBC Two at 10pm on Monday 20 July and will be available on BBC iPlayer after tx.

Inspired by a powerful involuntary mania which took hold of citizens in the city of Strasbourg just over 500 years ago, STRASBOURG 1518 is a collaboration in isolation with some of the greatest dancers working today.

STRASBOURG 1518 was co-commissioned by Artangel and Sadler’s Wells and produced by Academy Films for BBC Films and BBC Arts. The film is part of BBC Arts Culture In Quarantine; bringing the arts into the homes of the nation at a time of national lockdown.
