Posters for Mad to be Normal / The White King / The Eyes of My Mother

Independent Cinema: The monthly show about world cinema and cult titles. In this episode we’re looking at the work of four independent filmmakers whose work celebrates eclectic personalities and mixes genres to beguiling effect. Electric Sheep Magazine assistant editor Alex Fitch talks to husband and wife directing team Jörg Tittel and Alex Helfrecht about their dystopian debut film The White King starring Jonathan Pryce and Agyness Deyn, and to Nicolas Pesce about the influences on his monochrome thriller The Eyes of my Mother, from Béla Tarr to Tobe Hooper.

Also, in a Q&A recorded at Chichester Cinema, Film Festival programmer Roger Gibson interviews Robert Mullen about his exploration of R.D. Laing’s anti-establishment psychiatric facility Kingsley Hall in Mad to be Normal. With music by Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox, Puddles Pity Party, The Ramones and The Zombies. Originally broadcast 19th April 2017 on Resonance 104.4 FM
