WEDNESDAY 2 SEPTEMBER, 9pm: WHITE LIGHTNIN'
SPECIAL PREVIEW AND Q&A
Dir: Dominic Murphy, UK 2009
Electric Sheep Magazine presents weird, wild and wonderful films every first Wednesday of the month at the Prince Charles Cinema.
A dark, surreal semi-biopic about glue-sniffing, hard-drinking, hell-raising Appalachian mountain dancer Jesco White (impressively played by newcomer Ed Hogg), British director Dominic Murphy’s controversial debut feature takes us deeper and deeper into Jesco’s crazed visions and wild religious fantasies, culminating in horrific revenge and violent redemption.
Electric Sheep Magazine are delighted to welcome Dominic Murphy for a Q&A after the screening.
With thanks to Momentum Pictures. White Lightnin’ starts its theatrical run at the ICA and Rich Mix (Bethnal Green), London, on September 25.
