TOKEN HOMO presents a second season of BAR TRASH – TRASH PLANET – a celebration of 70s eco-horror at Genesis Cinema & Rule Zero. Tickets £1 / Double-bill £5 – Booking now!

IRMA VEP d. Oliver Assayas, 1996 + Live podcast recording with The Cinematologists at The Garden Cinema (22 NOV 19:30).

“The Cinematologists return to the Garden Cinema to screen and discuss Oliver Assayas’ comedy-drama Irma Vep (1996). Starring the ethereally stunning Maggie Cheung as a fictionalised version of herself, Assayas’ work is a reflexive satire of the film industry, particularly the idiosyncrasies of France’s self-importance as a nation defined by cinema.”

“Comparisons with the recently released TV version starring Alicia Vikander in the title role, were always going to be made. For the Q&A Dario is joined by guest co-host Dr Catherine Wheatley, film academic from Kings College London, who recently reviewed the TV show for Sight and Sound calling it a ‘glorious, gluttonous, nonsensical delight: a cinephile fantasy made flesh.'”
