This film screened on Wednesday 18th March 2015.
Filmmaker Roman Polanski has sustained a singular vision and style throughout his career. By using the basics of cinema – picture, sound and editing – he aims to put the audience inside the head of the character.
In this psychological drama a young woman is beset by demons when left alone in an apartment. Writer, director and lecturer Steven Benedict will discuss how Polanski conveys her torment, and how this technique is echoed in other films, such as Martin Scorcese’s Raging Bull.
