Argentine-French provocateur Gaspar Noe, known for writing and directing the controversial cult films "Irreversible," "I Stand Alone," "Enter the Void," and "Love," is back with a brand-new motion picture, which is currently premiering this week at the Cannes Film Festival.

Check out the first international trailer for Noe's latest effort "Climax." It's a trippy dream-like dance film about a group of street dancers who, while finishing up a dance rehearsal, discover that someone has spiked a large bowl of sangria with psychedelic drugs, which turns a night of partying into a night of utter madness.

Algerian-born French dancer-turned-actress Sofia Boutella, who co-starred in "Star Trek Beyond," "Kingsman," "The Mummy," "Atomic Blonde," and recently in the HBO movie "Fahrenheit 45," is leading the cast, which features mostly professional street dancers .

Noe is again working with his frequent DP, acclaimed Belgian cinematographer Benoit Debie, who also did the camera work for "Spring Breakers," "Get the Gringo," "Lost River," and the music videos "Rihanna: Bitch Better Have My Money" and "John Legend Feat. Rick Ross: Who Do We Think We Are."

"Climax" will be released later in the year.

synopsis:
In the mid 90's, 20 urban dancers join together for a three-day rehearsal in a closed-down boarding school located at the heart of a forest to share one last dance. They then make one last party around a large sangria bowl. Quickly, the atmosphere becomes charged and a strange madness will seize them the whole night. If it seems obvious to them that they have been drugged, they neither know by who nor why. And it's soon impossible for them to resist to their neurosises and psychoses, numbed by the hypnotic and the increasing electric rhythm of the music. While some feel in paradise, most of them plunge into hell.
