Showing March 4th
Two fishermen pick up a psychotic escaped convict who tells them that he intends to murder them when the ride is over.
After the screening, Mia Bays and Joanna Duncombe from the agency-for-change Birds Eye View will host an illustrated talk about the film, about director Ida Lupino’s journey from S.E London to Hollywood stardom as an actress then director, and on the female gaze in film noir.
Birds Eye View’s mission is to bring ever-greater audiences to films by women. We celebrate our 15th anniversary in 2018 as an agency for change, we are now a year-round campaign, having once been the UK’s foremost film festival for films by women. We are a collective of industry heavyweights from across the film value chain with over 25k followers.
BEV is now run by Mia Bays, a producer of an Oscar winner and multiple BAFTA nominated fiction and documentary features. We are avid film lovers who celebrate the female gaze in all its different incarnations in an intersectional and inclusive way. All welcome.
Joanna Duncombe is a film programmer and curator.
