Flipside at 40 + discussion
Join special guests as we celebrate 40 releases in our BFI DVD/Blu-ray label.
Unfortunately Caroline Munro is unavailable for this event due to other commitments.
Total runtime 120min
This special event celebrates the BFI Flipside Blu-ray and DVD strand, which after 39 releases is still unearthing obscure cinema and TV must-sees, on its ongoing mission to curate an alternative Brit-screen history in deluxe home-entertainment editions. Tonight we present rarely-screened short, sharp shockers: a past-it popster faces death in G.G.Passion (1966, Dir David Bailey); paranormal peculiarities unsettle unfortunate picnickers in The Lake (1978, Dir Lindsey C Vickers); and Dreamhouse (1983, Dir Al Beresford) sees newlyweds surprised by something sinister that the surveyor missed.
Followed by a discussion with Flipside perpetrators Sam Dunn, Jane Giles, William Fowler, Vic Pratt, Jo Botting and Douglas Weir, in anticipation of the release of ‘Flipside 40’: Lewis Gilbert’s 1952 juvenile delinquency thriller Cosh Boy.
Cosh Boy will be released as a dual-format Blu-ray/DVD edition on Mon 20 Jan.
