Unholy Women: Dementia + Panel

Incorporating elements of horror, film noir and drawing heavily from expressionism, John Parker’s Dementia (also known as Daughter of Horror) is the portrait of a woman’s nightmarish journey into madness.

Shot entirely without dialogue and filled with suggestive violence and psycho-sexual imagery with an eerie score to boot, this avant-garde thriller follows the nocturnal prowling of a young woman (Adrienne Barrett) haunted by guilt after murdering her father.

The screening is followed by a panel discussion exploring how the films in The Final Girls present: Unholy Women portray mental illness and female anxieties.

 

The Final Girls present Unholy Women,  a season of films with mould-breaking women that challenge notions of femininity, control and hysteria.
