Sun 23rd Situation Sounds Presents: Northern Disco Lights A film screening about the history of Norwegian dance music followed by an evening of Norwegian dance music with Situation Sounds playing the tunes. Northern Disco Lights tells the untold story of a group of teenagers in the arctic city of Tromsø, who set off a chain of events that would go on to transform their country. To escape the boredom of growing up in a remote outpost they created their own music scene, setting up radio stations, parties, building synthesizers and making tunes. Word spread as like-minded souls recognised the call to arms and inspired a generation of kids who would go on to change dance music and Norway forever. 7:30pm £5otd Click here for facebook event page (Goods Shed)
Sat 29th Prevenge plus Q&A w/ director Alice Lowe Alice Lowe, co-writer of Ben Wheatley’s Sightseers, has made her directorial debut with Prevenge, a darkly satirical slasher film in which she plays a pregnant woman who is convinced her foetus is ordering her to kill. A pitch black, wryly British comedy, Prevenge follows Ruth, a pregnant woman on a killing spree that's as funny as it is vicious. It's her misanthropic unborn baby dictating Ruth's actions, holding society responsible for the absence of a father. Struggling with her conscience, loneliness, and a strange strain of prepartum madness, Ruth must ultimately choose between redemption and destruction at the moment of motherhood. There will be a Q&A after the screening with Alice Lowe and Joe Magee, an award winning UK illustrator, artist and film maker. 7:30pm £6.50adv/£8otd Click here for facebook event page (Goods Shed)
