#QueerHorrorNights presents a very special event at the historic Rio Cinema – our Halloween Monsters Ball: NIGHTBREED (28 OCT 22:00+).

BREATHLESS aka A bout de souffle d. Jean-Luc Godard, 1960 at: Genesis Cinema (20 SEP 18:35) / BFI Southbank+ Intro by Programmer-at-Large Geoff Andrew (22 SEP 18:20).

“In tribute to the iconoclastic and hugely influential filmmaker, critic and theorist Jean-Luc Godard, who died on 13 September aged 91, we are screening his acclaimed first feature, BREATHLESS, a major early hit for the French New Wave. Based on a scenario by François Truffaut, the film is both a witty homage to American B-movie crime thrillers and a love letter to Paris” (BFI)
