Still from On the Silver Globe by Andrzej Zulawski and posters for The Godfather part II, Nashville and Stranger than Paradise by Andrzej Klimowski and Danusia Schejbal

On the Silver Globe, an estoric Polish Sci-Fi epic directed by in 1977 – then lost and believed destroyed by the authorities for a decade before its cinema release – was screened at Tate Modern last year as part of a mini season of films titled: ‘Polish New Wave – The History of a Phenomenon that Never Existed’. Looking ahead to the release of this film on DVD on the UK, Alex Fitch talks to the director – Andrzej Żuławski – about his struggles in getting the film released and the travails in making his horror films The Third Part of the Night (1971) and Possession (1981) under the eyes of a communist regime.
Alex also talks to Polish poster designer Andrzej Klimowski and his wife Danusia Schejbal (famously depicted as the victim of an assassin’s bullet on Klimowski’s poster for Robert Altman’s Nashville) about working on the fringes of Polish film making in the late 1970s and whether the films of the time could be seen as belonging to an artistic movement.

Today’s screening: Repulsion (1965)

November 4, 2009

Electric Sheep Film Club: Repulsion (1965)

For the seventh meeting of the Electric Sheep Film Club at the Prince Charles Cinema off Leicester Square, we’re showing the classic London-set thriller about paranoia and claustrophobia:

Repulsion (1965)

Catherine Deneuve in Repulsion

Catherine Deneuve in Repulsion

One of Roman Polanski’s finest films and the first he made in the UK, Repulsion charts the mental disintegration of a sexually troubled, beautiful young woman played by Catherine Deneuve. As elegant as it is creepy, Polanski’s taut psychological horror thriller superbly conveys the character’s claustrophobic loneliness and contrasts the mundanity of her life in 60s London with the startling surreal hallucinations that increasingly take over her inner world. An absolute 60s classic.

With thanks to BFI. The film will be followed by informal discussion with Electric Sheep writers in the bar.

Price: £5/£3.50 Prince Charles members
Certificate 15
Dir: Roman Polanski, UK 1965

Wednesday 4th November, 8pm, Prince Charles Cinema, 7 Leicester Place, WC2
More info at www.princecharlescinema.com and www.electricsheepmagazine.com

100 Years of Korean Manwha is now on at the Korean Cultural Centre
Manhwa celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2009. This popular art form holds a long and cherished history that began with the first publication of Doyoung Lee’s political cartoons in “Daehanminbo.”, a print newspaper was founded on June 2, 1909, and manhwa was born along with it. Following its birth, manhwa had to endure Korea’s tumultuous history under Japanese colonial rule. Manhwa survived the time periods of national liberation, the dark years of the Korean War, and through the dismal military dictatorship. The 80’s and 90’s of the 20th century marked the renaissance of manhwa. Manhwa published during these bygone eras help us reflect on our nation’s past.
