THE HAPPY PRINCE 15

In a cheap Parisian hotel room Oscar Wilde lies on his death bed and the past floods back, transporting him to other times and places. Was he once the most famous man in London? The artist crucified by a society that once worshipped him? The lover imprisoned and freed, yet still running towards ruin in the final chapter of his life? Under the microscope of death he reviews the failed attempt to reconcile with his long suffering wife Constance, the ensuing reprisal of his fatal love affair with Lord Alfred Douglas and the warmth and devotion of Robbie Ross who tried and failed to save him from himself. From Dieppe to Naples to Paris freedom is elusive and Oscar is a penniless vagabond, always moving on, shunned by his old acquaintance, but revered by a strange group of outlaws and urchins to whom he tells the old stories – his incomparable wit still sharp. THE HAPPY PRINCE is a portrait of the dark side of a genius who lived and died for love in the last days of the nineteenth century.

HEREDITARY 15

When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter Annie (Toni Colette) and her husband (Gabriel Byrne) and their two children begin to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited. Making his feature debut, writer-director Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell.

SCIENCE FICTION THEATRE PRESENTS: THE CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN [1957] 12

Victor Frankenstein (Peter Cushing) is a brilliant scientist willing to stop at nothing in his quest to reanimate a deceased body. After alienating his long-time friend and partner, Paul Krempe (Robert Urquhart), with his extreme methods, Frankenstein assembles a hideous creature (Christopher Lee) out of dead body parts and succeeds in bringing it to life. But the monster is not as obedient or docile as Frankenstein expected, and it runs amok, resulting in murder and mayhem…

“This was the classic that single-handedly revived traditional British Gothic and firmly placed the ‘Hammer House of Horror’ on the global gore map.”
Radio Times

“Christopher Lee is excellent as the mute monster, but this is Cushing’s film all the way, and his ground-breaking portrayal of Baron Frankenstein dominated the series in five more films.”
TV Guide

“A sterling exemplar of the best of everything that made Hammer so special.”
Antagony & Ecstasy

Science Fiction Theatre is a monthly film club dedicated to classic sci-fi.

DISPATCH FEMINIST MOVING IMAGE: A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT (2014) 15

Strange things are afoot in Bad City. The Iranian ghost town, home to prostitutes, junkies, pimps, and other sordid souls, is a place that reeks of death and hopelessness, where a lonely vampire is stalking the towns’ most unsavory inhabitants. But when boy meets girl, an unusual love story begins to blossom…blood red.

The first Iranian Vampire Western, Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut feature basks in the sheer pleasure of pulp. A joyful mash-up of genre, archetype and iconography, its prolific influences span spaghetti westerns, graphic novels, horror films, and the Iranian New Wave. Amped by a mix of Iranian rock, techno and Morricone-inspired riffs, its airy, anamorphic, black-and-white aesthetic and artfully drawn- out scenes combine the simmering tension of Sergio Leone with the weird surrealism of David Lynch.

Margaux Portron, DISPATCH FMI’s Research and Development Manager, will be introducing this screening with a discussion around gendered spaces.
Margaux Portron holds a PhD in political philosophy and wrote a thesis that explored the relationship between drone warfare and democracy. After two years as researcher and deputy director for an organisation supporting conflict artists, she founded Paper Planes, an organisation which focuses on art and politics; it is the result of research and exchanges with creatives who express the need for a space to reflect critically on their practice, particularly when working with vulnerable artists or participants.
DISPATCH FMI is an intersectional feminist moving image curatorial practice and online platform with a focus on works created by women. Our aim is to bring feminist cinema and theory to all by making our screenings accessible, affordable, and educational.
