Shown to complement the Patron's Legacy Project, Only Lovers Left Alive features performances from both Sir John Hurt and Tilda Swinton.

Set against the romantic desolation of Detroit and Tangier, an underground musician, deeply depressed by the direction of human activities, reunites with his resilient and enigmatic lover. Their love story has already endured several centuries at least, but their debauched idyll is soon disrupted by her wild and uncontrollable younger sister.
