Never On A Sunday: THE BATWOMAN d. René Cardona, 1968 UK premiere of new restoration + Intro by Viviana García-Besné at Close-Up (26 JUN 20:15).

“An unforgettably colourful restoration of a classic of Mexican pulp cinema, The Batwoman (La Mujer murcielago) is the superhero film to end all superhero films! Maura Monti stars as the titular Batwoman, or Gloria, depending on how well you know her. She’s a female twist on Bruce Wayne, one of the richest women in the world who is also a luchador and an international spy. At the outset of the film, a series of male luchadores have been found dead in Acapulco. Detective Mario Robles is one of the few people who know Batwoman’s true identity, along with FBI agent Tony Roca. Robles enlists Batwoman to help with the case since she is also a luchador, and, incidentally, train at the same gym…”

Never on Sunday is a series of screenings of rare classics, archive masterpieces, obscure delights and forgotten gems carefully curated and introduced by Ehsan Khoshbakht and taking place the last Sunday of each month at Close-Up.
