Frances Scholz and Mark von Schlegell premiere Amboy, a new horror film project that interlaces passages of genuine documentary (for instance with Lydia van Vogt, widow of the celebrated sci-fi writer A.E. van Vogt) with carefully scripted and acted sequences that serve the loose narrative arc of the film. The film charts the journey of an artist-filmmaker who is led astray from her attempts to make a documentary in Los Angeles by the mysterious history of a deceased male artist named Amboy. Amboy’s storyline is expressed with a disorienting array of cinematic strategies taken from feature films, documentaries, B-movies, and ...

From the repurposed rubble of salvagepunk to undead hordes banging on shopping mall doors, from empty waste zones to teeming plagued cities, Combined and Uneven Apocalypse grapples with the apocalyptic fantasies of our collapsing era.

The Uncanny Child in Transnational Cinema illustrates how global horror film images of children reconceptualised childhood at the beginning of the twenty-first century, unravelling the child’s long entrenched binding to ideologies of growth, futurity, and progress. The book analyses an influential body of horror films featuring subversive depictions of children and proposes that complex cultural and industrial shifts at the turn of the millennium resulted in potent cinematic renegotiations of the concept of childhood. In these transnational films—largely stemming from Spain, Japan, and America—the child resists embodying growth and futurity: by demonstrating both the culturally specific and globally resonant properties ...

In this title, Aristide Antonas approaches the city through its exceptional moments —investigating urbanity through alegal, unaccounted incidents that take place in various locations of a city. It does not constitute an attempt to highlight the accidental event, as if it would emerge from a neutral backdrop of urban uniformity. It does not seek the exception by renouncing the rule, but instead organizes the exception as a function of the rule. We should not then see the neutrality of urban scenery as a symptom demonstrated by the city while its civil character supposedly becomes more and more inauthentic; neutrality is ...

Sunday 30 September | 7.30pm | Free Wolfen, 1981 (1hr 54mins) Directed by Michael Wadleigh An unusual mix of werewolf movie, police procedural, and serial killer thriller, Wolfen is based on a 1978 novel by Whitley Strieber, and directed by Michael Wadleigh, best known for directing the documentary Woodstock (1969). Entangled in a plot symptomatically torn between political history, capitalist practice and mythologies of the land, Wolfen is an odd and beguiling narrative about a critical moment in the collapse of radical politics and the emergence of a feral neoliberalism against a backdrop of urban dereliction and real estate speculation.
