#QueerHorrorNights continue with David Cronenberg’s THE FLY (1986) at The Castle Cinema (Friday 24 JUNE 19:00): booking now!

LANCELOT DU LAC aka Lancelot of the Lake d. Robert Bresson, 1974 + Intro by Jason Wood, Director of Public Programme & Audiences (16 JUN 18:30) / Part of OF SIN & SALVATION: THE CINEMA OF ROBERT BRESSON at BFI Southbank:

“An extraordinary film, Lancelot of the Lake is partly about the tensions in the relationships between Arthur, Guinevere, Lancelot and Gawain, and partly about the demise of the Middle Ages’ codes of chivalry. The Knights of the Round Table are effectively imprisoned in their armour, and Bresson’s supremely imaginative visual compositions and soundtrack speak volumes about their plight: a jousting tournament is especially unforgettable.” (BFI)
