Alex van Warmerdan's Borgman takes a new spin on the home invasion genre with a film about a nomadic tribe driven away from their homes. After their leader Borgman (Jan Bijvoet) is beaten senseless after asking for me, the tribe begin to infiltrate the lives and dreams of the upper-middle class family (Jeroen Perceval and Hadewych Minis). Borgman is van Warmerdan's eighth feature film, and fourth to screen at TIFF (Grimm , Waiter , and The Last Days of Emma Blank ).
Below is the poster and trailer for Borgman, which plays this year's Toronto International Film Festival within the Vanguard programme.
