OPENING NIGHT FILM

OPENING NIGHT FILM CHIMERA TUE 1 MAY 8.00PM STRATFORD PICTUREHOUSE Dir: Maurice Haaems Year: 2018 Language: English Runtime: 80 Country: USA Our opening night film stars Henry Ian Cusick (Lost, The 100). A brilliant but disturbed scientist’s children are in cryogenic suspension, while he races to cure their deadly disease by decoding the DNA of the immortal Turritopsis jellyfish. To progress he needs lots of stem cells. A manipulative millionaire can help but she has her own agenda, Inspired by the director’s real life as his loved ones struggled with genetic disease, Chimera asks the existential question “do you want to live forever? “ Screens with the UK premiere of Nguyen-Anh Nguyen’s short film HYPERLIGHT. Our gala evening also has a prescreening introduction by Dr Charlotte Mykura (microbiologist and geneticist) who will try to separate the science from the fiction, and highlight the themes, the exaggerations, and the sometimes stranger-than-fiction realities of nature.” In association with UK PREMIERE DIRECTOR Q&A 2 THE LONDON INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASTIC FILM 1 — 7 MAY 2018

DIVISION 19 CLOSING NIGHT FILM Reality television has done it all hasn’t it? Our news is impartial, right? Goverment works for us? In 2039 rather than selecting people for ‘reality freak shows’ we now use prisons as the latest opiate for the masses. Viewers get to choose what the prisoners eat, what they wear, the entertainment they can access – even who they must fight. So successful has this been that the TV company now wants to extend beyond the prison walls and broadcast the surrounding town’s population. Who will stop them? If the Truman Show could be any darker, then DIVISION 19 takes the extra step and questions who we are and why, for centuries, we have loved watching the misfortune and gladiatorial behaviour of others. Written and directed by Suzie Halewood and a smash hit at Boston SciFi Film Festival we are delighted to have the London Premiere of this cautionary tale.
