Electric Sheep Film Club: White Lightnin’
For the fifth meeting of the all new Electric Sheep Film Club at the Prince Charles Cinema off Leicester Square, we’re proud to be showing the London premiere of:
Dominic Murphy’s White Lightnin’ (2009)
A dark, surreal semi-biopic about glue-sniffing, hard-drinking, hell-raising Appalachian mountain dancer Jesco White (impressively played by newcomer Ed Hogg), British director Dominic Murphy’s controversial debut feature takes us deeper and deeper into Jesco’s crazed visions and wild religious fantasies, culminating in horrific revenge and violent redemption.
We are delighted to welcome Dominic Murphy for a Q and A after the screening. Note the later than usual starting time of the screening.
With thanks to Momentum Pictures. White Lightnin’ starts its theatrical run at the ICA and Rich Mix (Bethnal Green), London, on September 25.
Price: £5/£3.50 Prince Charles members
Certificate 18 (TBC)
