— Electric Sheep Magazine
Join us every second Sunday of the month for a feature film and a chat, preceded by an episode from a serial or series, which will be shown over a season of screenings.On Sunday 13 December, as part of our season of underground-related films, we are very pleased to present Guillermo del Toro’s much-loved Pan’s Labyrinth (El laberinto del fauno).
In this wonderful Gothic fairy tale set during the Spanish Civil War, a young girl named Ofelia has to confront both the monsters of fascism and the terrifying creatures of her imagination. Smoothly moving between real and magic world, Pan’s Labyrinth tells the moving tale of a child’s initiation to life and death.
