A Field in England

de Ben Wheatley


In the middle of the English Civil War, a group of small time soldiers runs into an alchemist. The encounter winds up with all of them consuming mushrooms in the middle of the battlefield and experiencing their well-known and hilarious consequences. Ben Wheatley, one of the Festival’s pet directors, returns to Sitges with a psychedelic piece, in impeccable black and white and halfway between insanity and black humor. A literally hallucinogenic trip.


Ben Wheatley

His debut, Down Terrace (2009), established him as one of the great talents in British film, a status he cemented with Kill List (2011) and Sightseers (2012), all of them screened in Sitges along with A Field in England (2013) and High-Rise (2015).
