Delirium Trailer

Delirium

Amidst the dreaming spires of a British university, an international composer struggles to deserve his reputation and seal his career with a modern Requiem, only to find it raises more ghosts and more strife than it lays to rest.

Synopsis

International composer Peter Pilger faces the challenge of his life:

To deliver a Requiem for his former college St Jude’s in time for the Memorial Celebrations while facing down revelations about his past and living up to his new authority as High Master.

Freighted in to lead his struggling alma mater through the rising tides of university fees, student unrest and political correctness, the wayward pop star turned composer neglects his reclusive wife and ungovernable teenage kids to turn upside down the institution he is meant to rescue.

But it is not from his misspent youth as an undergraduate at St Jude’s and not from the modern student body that his biggest trial emerges, but from the kitchens, where a time bomb ticks amongst the migrant college staff in the dazzling cellist Anastasiya, who remembers more about him than he does.

His Requiem lays nothing to rest. Not his libido. Not even his conscience.

Filmed on location at the Founder’s Building Royal Holloway (RHUL), Egham, Surrey.
