“Fear and how we react to it fascinates me. It says a lot about a person. Why do some people enjoy horror whilst others avoid it, entirely unable to handle it?”

Final girls, freak flags and feminist sensibilities. In association with Underwire Film Festival, we present a retrospective of the curious horrors of Prano Bailey-Bond.

A gal with a taste for gore, raised on Twin Peaks and old school video nasties, Bailey-Bond’s work calls upon an earlier era of lower fi, Mary Whitehouse-condemned slashers blended up with a touch of fairytale to build evocative worlds, deceptively dreamlike in their fusing of a dark cinematic vocabulary and eerie allure.

Announced as one of Screen International’s 2018 Stars of Tomorrow, Prano’s first video nasty-centric feature Censor is currently in the works. We’re excited to screen her preceding short films and showcase a formidable woman carving space in a genre all too sparse of them.

Prano will be in conversation with Anna Bogutskaya (Underwire) following the screening, and be sure to stick around and join Underwire for complementary drinks in the bar afterwards!
