Experimental/Underground Cinema screening in Porto!
Film Panic Presents! PREGNANT (2015/@Fabrizio Federico) + ORPHINE (2014/@Sarahjane Swan & Roger Simian)
”Pregnant is a personal exploration of the world shaped by social media and the struggle to live an authentic life within it. This feature film looks at technological addiction, voyeurism, self-(un)awareness, spiritual stagnation and alienation, using the language of cinema to guide us through the experience of a consciousness seeped in this reality. It is a work of cinema that gives us a true expression of the modern condition. ” THE UNDERGROUND FILM STUDIO
Following the movie a panel exhibition hosted by Kate Taylor (London Short Film Festival co-founder, now at the BFI London Film Festival), alongside Duncan Reekie (Exploding Cinema) Anna Bogutskaya (Final Girls, Underwire, BFI), Laura Shacham (Kino London) and the film’s director Jett Hollywood.
The new documentary, Anarchy In The UK by director Jett Hollywood examines the rise & rise of the UK’s Underground Cinema Movement that involves surrealism, violence and a lot of gin. Starting from 2010 with the government cuts to the UK Film Council & the London tuition fee riots, a new wave of filmmakers and cult cinema groups shook the cinema industry cage and took to the streets to shoot guerrilla-style movies. Creating a generation gap in the film industry. This is their story.
