Greenpoint’s unique indie filmhouse, Film Noir Cinema (122 Meserole Ave), is once again teaming up with the Miskatonic Institute of Horror Studies to bring you an illustrated talk on the folk horror film Penda’s Fen (1974), which has only recently been unearthed for public viewing. According to the Institute, the film “…culminates with the most euphoric revelation in British cinema: “My race is mixed. My sex is mixed. I am woman and man, light with darkness, nothing pure.” The event is tomorrow night, January 9th from 7pm-10pm at Film Noir. If you wish to purchase tickets, they are available for $12 each, here.
The class will be led by Sukhdev Sandhu, editor of The Edge Is Where The Centre Is, a limited edition art book about the film. The interactive talk “will explore its topographies and febrile contexts – experimental public broadcasting, avant-garde arcadias, the rural uncanny, a mid-70s Britain that teetered on the brink of civil war, the rise of eldritch England.”
We’re giving away a pair of tickets to the class! To enter, visit our Facebook page by clicking the link below, and enter your email so we can notify you. Winners will be chosen at random.
