Our Picks + Women In Body Horror
Tuesday 19 January 2021, by , ,
This week, we are joined by Georgina Allan, film editor for the Radical Art Review to talk about women in horror, specifically focusing on Julia Ducournau’s Raw and Alice Lowe’s Prevenge and their representations of women as complex protagonists and instigators of violence (as opposed to helpless victims or mindless monsters).
We mention Jordan Peele’s Us, Marina De Van’s In My Skin and Don’t Look Back and others.
Picks of the week include Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson’s mind warping, beautiful Synchronic and Channel 4 series Adult Material, a three-dimensional, intelligent and nuanced look at the world of porn and the tendrils that reach into all spheres of public and private life.
Finally, we flag the upcoming International Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival 29 Jan - 6 Feb - as official partner, Mydylarama will play host to interviews with all competition filmmakers - and Emerging Filmmakers Night’s winter edition on 25 Jan, which includes three workshops (funding applications, screenwriting and festival strategy) that are free to join to our subscribers.
