Fantasia International Film Festival—said to be the largest and most influential genre fest in North America—is back on and in person this year.

True to its name, the event’s lineup includes some of the most fantastical, bizarre, imaginative, gasp-inducing, and flat-out weirdest features coming to the global stage.Among them is an exciting “Spotlight On Queer Cinema,” which includes a number of films we’ve previously featured on Queerty, including paranoid horror Hypochondriac, backwoods thriller Swallowed, LGBTQ wrestling doc Out In The Ring, and the wild queer pastiche Please Baby Please.But there’s another film we’ve neglected to mention until now, and—hoo boy!—does it look like a doozy.

Seriously, even the trailer has sent our heads spinning.From auteur filmmaker Eduardo Casanova—dubbed the “Spanish John Waters”—comes La Pietà, a surrealist odyssey that’s somehow about both the toxic relationship between a mother and her queer son and the North Korean dictatorship.
