She Will (15)

Wednesday 26th October 2022 - Saturday 29th October 2022

Tickets £5 full price/£4 concessions.

Dir. Charlotte Colbert, UK, 2021, 95 mins. Cast. Alice Krige, Kota Eberhardt, Malcom McDowell, Rupert Everett, Jonathan Aris.

An aging film star retreats to the Scottish countryside with her nurse to recover from surgery. While there, mysterious forces of revenge emerge from the land where witches were burned. Krige is astonishingly good and there should certainly be more films about angry post-menopausal women tapping into their dark side.

“Alice Krige shines in this dark thriller, a tangy blend of folk horror and post-MeToo reckoning with a salty spike of satire” – Leslie Felperin, The Guardian

Wednesday screening with Intro and post-film Q&A with Alice Krige and producer Jessica Malik.

The screenings on the 28th and 29th October will be accompanied by "Kalla", a short film by Plymouth based Filmmaker and Musician Chris Muirhead.

Gwydian (Georgia Simone) loses her job, is rebuffed by her shut-in mother and drifts home to her house share. Convinced to perform a wassailing, the 3 friends hike up the hill and open their throats to the trees. A short film about humans' relationship to nature and how changing our sense of being part of, rather than controlling, could be what saves us.

In Dreams Are Monsters: Season of the Witch

Plymouth Arts Cinema, in association with Pagan Phoenix SW, is delighted to be participating in BFI’s major UK-wide film and events season celebrating the horror genre on screen, taking place from at BFI Southbank and cinemas nationwide.

Our Season of the Witch films, workshops and talks is designed to reclaim the image of the Witch from the Horror genre. We look at the way cinema has portrayed witchcraft. From alluring femme fatale through teen rebels to women finding power and liberation. This selection of films about witchcraft, magic and the dark side provides an interesting take on the changing social position of women over the last sixty years. The films range from a fairy tale about contemporary African witchcraft to romantic comedies and folk horror. At the centre of each film is the character of the witch: magic, but also subversive, dangerous and powerful in different ways. We include cult favourites, rarely seen classics and also two short films.

Co-curated by Anna Navas, Plymouth Arts Cinema's Director, and Judith Noble. Judith Noble is an Associate professor at Arts University Plymouth. Her specialist areas of research are film, surrealism, magic, the occult and witchcraft. Her most recent book is Visions of Enchantment (with Daniel Zamani, Fulgur).

We are delighted to receive funding from the British Film Institute for the Season of the Witch which is part of the In Dreams Are Monsters BFI Blockbuster season. #InDreamsAreMonsters
