MONDAY 9 MARCH, Roxy Bar and Screen, 7:30pm, FREE: For this month’s Electric Sheep / Resonance FM film screening, we are very proud to present Guillermo del Toro’s first feature Cronos (1993), a sumptuously filmed, atmospheric vampire tale, which, just like Pan’s Labyrinth, has at its heart a little girl faced with horrors of a real and supernatural kind. An imaginative re-invention of the vampire myth and the first collaboration between Del Toro and actor Ron Perlman before Hellboy, it is also a moving love story as well as an oblique take on the USA’s predatory relationship to Mexico.
The film will be introduced by Electric Sheep Magazine editor Virginie Selavy.
With thanks to Optimum Releasing.
7.30pm, 09/03/09, Roxy Bar and Screen, 128-132 Borough High Street London SE1 1LB
