Synopsis

As a finale to Scalarama 2018 in London, Genesis is proud to present a weekend of non-stop exploding cinema. 9 fantastic films – many of which may be new to you – in the tradition of midnight movies and the Scala’s legendary marathons, selected for you by the films fans’ film fans: Kim Newman, Edgar Wright and Julia Marchese. There’ll be a Q+A on Friday with Kim and our special guest curator from the USA, Julia.


La Ronde will be introduced by Julia Marchese


Julia:


“I only saw this film recently, but it completely blew my mind. It’s everything I want in a film – beauty, pain, loss, wit and a concept that will be repeated in cinema for decades after its release. Perfect! (Plus, on 35mm!! It doesn’t get any better than that, folks!)”


This Academy Award-nominated French film presents a series of interconnected romantic entanglements. Narrated by an omniscient guide, the movie has a large cast of characters that includes a prostitute, who meets up with a soldier, who later becomes involved with a maid. This merry-go-round continues until it circles back to the beginning, making for an intriguing tale of love and infidelity.


Tickets are £50 for a weekend pass, £24 for the Saturday ‘Edgar Wright’s stuff’ special, or £10 / £7.50 [students / concessions] for each film.
