Zodiac Film Club presents: Audition @ The Castle Cinema
May 21 all-day
Zodiac Film Club presents: Audition @ The Castle Cinema

This May Zodiac Film Club invites you to come in out of the sun and watch one of the original J-horrors with us. Takashi Miike’s Audition (1999) tells the story of Aoyama (Ryo Ishibashi), a widower who holds a fake audition for a made-up film role to pick a potential new wife out of the hopeful starlets. He’s delighted to meet the beautiful, talented, oh-so submissive and slightly damaged Asami (Eihi Shiina). We love it for its subtle (and less subtle) comments on gender dynamics, Asami’s perfectly picked ensembles and the fact that the rug is totally pulled out from under us in the final act.

Beginning with a shared love of horror, pulp, thrills and mystery, Sarah Kathryn Cleaver and Jordan Storm Louise set up the Zodiac Film Club. You can expect carefully chosen screenings every month, a film for each sign. We select good looking films, complex female characters and our favourites in forgotten classics, cult and contemporary cinema to share with you, and invite you to talk about it with us afterwards.

One Cut of the Dead film screening w/lead actress Q&A @ Prince Charles Cinema
Jul 12 @ 8:45 pm
One Cut of the Dead film screening w/lead actress Q&A @ Prince Charles Cinema

HARUMI SHUHAMA the “POM” star of ONE CUT OF THE DEAD, will be in attendance for a one-off screening plus after-talk at the Prince Charles Cinema on Friday, July 12th
———————-
The film opens in a run-down, abandonad warehouse where a film crew are making a zombie film… Yet, this is no ordinary warehouse. It’s been said that it’s the site of where military experiments took place… Out of nowhere, real zombies arrive and terrorize the crew!

This may sound like a the plot of a clichéd zombie film, but One Cut of the Dead is something completely different! Starting off with a non-stop one-take 37 minute shot, the film then completely switches direction and turns the zombie genre completely upside down into a charming, audience-friendly comedy!
