Presented as part of SHE’S CURIOUS, a programme of events and activities celebrating the imagination, creativity and private worlds of women through film taking place in July 2022 in Brighton & Hove and Lewes.
Take a trip down the rabbit hole…
Alice / 1988 / 86mins / Subtitled / Rated PG
Alice, Jan Švankmajer’s first feature film, is a surrealist adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” (1865). The film combines animation, puppetry, and live action to evoke a distorted fantastical and ominous atmosphere.
Alice follows her stuffed rabbit through a portal inside her dresser to be whisked away to Wonderland. While the White Rabbit, Mad Hatter and Cheshire Cat are still present, the classic story and bizarre characters have undergone an unsettling transformation. This familiar wonderland is reimagined as a grotesque and menacing world.
Doors and Bar at 7pm for a 7:30pm start.
SHE’S CURIOUS meanders through the lives and experiences of women of all ages and abilities, shining a light on female narratives, secret places and private desires.
Curated and delivered in partnership by Screenshot, a network of alternative and independent film programmers in Brighton & beyond, SHE’S CURIOUS presents a selection of unique and unforgettable film experiences that showcase complex and intriguing female protagonists, as well as films that are led by female creators behind the screen.
Plus: Try out the One Bum Cinema Club booth and see an unexpected short animated film, chosen at random for you. This free, drop-in personal cinema experience will tour ACCA, Depot and The Old Market from 6 – 21 July 2022.
