MY WINNIPEG

Guy Maddin, Canada, 2007
20 September, 8pm | Victoria Works, S3 8DE | £5
Experimental and visually dazzling, this acclaimed ‘docu-fantasia’ is Maddin’s rumination on his hometown and his complex relationship to it. The main feature will be preceded by a rarely screened 1942 local short, and the Magic Lantern Film Club plan to make the evening ‘an autumnal social event’ incorporating a food van, bar, music and ‘extra (secret) entertainment’.

MISTAKEN FOR STRANGERS

Tom Berninger, USA, 2013
21 September, 8pm | 215 Sharrow Vale Road | £3 (inc. cake and coffee)
A film festival favourite, this documentary was made by Tom, younger brother of rock band The National’s lead singer, Matt Berninger. Given that Tom makes horror flicks and listens exclusively to heavy metal, and was invited along on tour as a roadie, not a filmmaker, this is an extremely entertaining film. It’s also Sharrow Reels’ second birthday, so go along and celebrate. Link

THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT

Wes Caven, USA, 1972
23 September, 8.30pm | Showroom Cinema

A cult classic rape revenge flick, and Craven’s directorial debut, this is pretty brutal stuff. Apart from oft-mentioned issues around plot credibility (Really? Who cares?!), this is a tense, shocking film with naturalistic acting and some powerful, chilling moments. Presented by Celluloid Screams in partnership with Cigarette Burns Cinema, Psychotronic Cinema and Scalarama as a Showroom Cult Tuesday. Link
