Time & Tickets

In a small town in America, a drunk truck driver collides head-on with a train filled to the brim with toxic chemicals. A black cloud spreads across the sky. Jack, a popular professor of Hitler studies with a great fascination for supermarkets, stands by and watches. Together with his wife – who is somehow becoming increasingly forgetful – and their four children, he flees. How much do they actually have to worry about? And surely everything will be alright?

WHITE NOISE is not a film that can be easily labelled. The film is an exceptional mix of absurd humour, existential questions, wacky action scenes and social criticism. Baumbach pulled out all the stops to bring Don DeLillo's unfilmable book to the silver screen. Where we know him mostly for personal, sometimes painfully funny portraits, he now choses a different, more maximalist path with WHITE NOISE. The film opened the Venice Film Festival earlier this year.
