WHAT WE CALL LOVE: FROM SURREALISM TO NOW
PROGRAMME 2: UNDER THE SKIN
An alien has landed in Glasgow. Taking the form of a woman, she drives around the city luring lonely or lecherous men to a grim fate. Social realism and science fiction meld to startling effect in Jonathan Glazer’s hugely inventive third feature, a mesmerising audio visual experience with Scarlett Johansson perfectly cast as the unknowable, predatory being.
The IFI is delighted to partner with the Irish Museum of Modern Art on a programme of films selected to respond to the current exhibition, What We Call Love: From Surrealism to Now, which explores how the notion of love has evolved through the 20th century. The films chosen reflect how the surrealist tradition has incorporated themes of love into their experimental works, from the early days of cinema to the present.
N.B IMMA Members can avail of tickets at IFI Membership prices for both programmes and IFI ticket holders can avail of a discounted €5 price for the exhibition on the weekend of 23rd & 24th Jan.
