Scene Season - Possession (1981)

Possession is a French-German psychological horror drama written and directed by Andrzej Zulawski. The plot obliquely follows the relationship between a spy (Sam Neil) and his wife Anna (Isabelle Adjani), who begins to exhibit increasingly disturbing behaviour after asking him for a divorce. Possession is a deeply unsettling experience, an unsung masterpiece. Adajani's astonishing performance earned her Best Actress award at the Cannes Film Festival and the French Cesar.  For many fans, Possession is one of the best cult films ever.

Scenes Project
The Scenes Season is inspired by a project by Caroline Jupp who interviewed local film audiences about significant movie scenes, from the iconic to the obscure. Possession has been chosen as the first film in the season for its harrowing scene in which Adajani’s character is possessed in a Berlin subway.
A Scenes publication, featuring the transcribed interviews, will be available to browse and purchase at Deptford Cinema.
