Cinematologists screening and podcast recording at Hastings’ Electric Palace

Head to Hastings on Sunday 12 February at 7pm (or just download if you can’t make it) to watch a screening of Georges Franju’s classic 50s horror Eyes Without a Face and listen to the recording of Dario Llinares celebrated podcast. Dario, who teaches on our Digital Film BA(Hons), sums up the film: “After causing an accident that left his daughter disfigured, a brilliant surgeon works tirelessly to give the girl a new face by kidnapping young women and attempting face transplants. Stunning cinematography lends a Cocteau-esque mood, and Edith Scob is remarkable as the ravaged beauty. This unique blend of horror and poetry has been a major influence on filmmakers as diverse as John Carpenter and Pedro Almodóvar.”
