Relaxed Screening – Under the Skin – intro and discussion @ BFI, London
June 26 @ 6:15 pm - 8:00 pm
Under the Skin
+ intro and discussion
The alien gaze is at the forefront of this second screening in our Ghosts in the Machine series.
Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy McWilliams, Adam Pearson
UK-Switzerland 2013. 108min
In this loose adaptation of Michel Faber’s acclaimed 2000 novel, Scarlett Johansson’s character expropriates the body of a young woman and prowls Scotland’s winding back roads and city streets in search of fresh meat. Shooting on location, director Jonathan Glazer invites the audience to watch from the outsider’s perspective and relate to their struggle to comprehend a foreign people in a foreign land.
This is the second in our short series Ghosts in the Machine, presented in partnership with Citizen Autistic – The London Autism Film Club. The post-screening discussion will be hosted by Benjamin Brown. The first event in the series is A Glitch in the Matrix + intro and discussion on Monday 22 May.
Relaxed screenings are presented each month for those in the neurodiverse community and their assistants and carers. More detailed information can be found at bfi.org.uk/relaxed.
