HARBOUR Lights will treat film lovers to a showing of modern world cinema favourite Dogtooth on Wednesday.

Three young people exist in a strange world of their parents' devising in this bizarre drama from writer and director Yorgos Lanthimos.

The teenagers and twenty somethings have never been allowed to leave the house and their knowledge of the outside world has been strictly controlled by their parents.

The only contact the youngsters have with people outside their family is Christina, a woman who visits and sets off a chain reaction of events that has terrible consequences for everyone involved.

Greek Kynodontas (aka Dogtooth) was an official selection at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.
