What's on at Arts Picturehouse Cambridge - Featured Event
The Final Girls proudly present a one-night-only nationwide screening of XX, the first and only all-female horror anthology. With shorts directed by genre heavyweights Karyn Kusama (The Invitation), Jovanka Vuckovic (The Captured Bird), Roxanne Benjamin (V/H/S, Southbound) and featuring the directorial debut of St. Vincent, this is a horror milestone. These tales of terror, blood and mayhem test the boundaries of what genre can be, loosely connected by the eerily beautiful animations of Sofia Carrillo. Whilst not directly related to one another, each short has a distinctly feminine theme, tackling and subtly subverting expectations placed on women and the roles they play.
The Final Girls is a film collective dedicated to exploring the intersections of horror film and feminism.
Director: James Gray
Starring: Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson, Sienna Miller. USA 2016. 141 mins.
Lost City Of Z centres on the story of real-life explorer Colonel Percy Fawcett (Hunnam), who in the 1920s journeyed into the Amazon jungle searching for a lost civilisation. Having left behind his sparky, intellectual and protesting wife (Miller), and accompanied by his aide-de-camp Henry Costin (Pattinson), he faces all manner of human and natural obstacles on his quest to find the mythical city.
