In the Swedish wilderness, William lives his life hidden in a foil-encased bedroom and beneath layers of copper-lined fabric due to a little-understood condition known as electrosensitivity. With his only human contact coming from his hopeful parents, a priest, and a psychologist, William wonders about the future. Marie Lidén’s sensitive documentary paints an empathetic portrait of loneliness and isolation — and a loving family’s efforts to save their son.
‘Lidén sidesteps the medical science around this somewhat contested disease, instead adopting a creative, dreamily poetic approach to evoking William’s lonely existence.’
Wendy Ide, The Observer
‘Surprisingly moving image of a disconnected life.’

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
