Capital Celluloid 2012 - Day 193: Thu July 12

The Land That Time Forgot (Connor, 1975): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 6.20pm

It's the 50th birthday of Amicus films and in celebration BFI Southbank are showing this popular fantasy film from the mid-70s. Here is their introduction: During WW1, survivors from a British merchant ship are taken aboard a German U-boat. A fuel problem forces them to make an unexpected stop on an uncharted island in the South Atlantic. Here they encounter a magical world, where primitive man exists side-by-side with dinosaurs. To celebrate the 50th birthday of Amicus Productions, the famous British sci-fi and horror specialists of the 60s and 70s, we are delighted to revisit this classic fantasy, adapted by Michael Moorcock from the novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs. We are pleased to announce that actor Keith Barron will be present for a Q&A following the screening of this digitally remastered film.

Here is the trailer.
