Capital Celluloid 2014 - Day 243: Mon Sep 1

Bloody Beans (Mari, 2013):
Fernandez and Wells, Somerset House, WC2R 1LA, 7.45pm

This screening, part of the Scalarama season, is hosted by the True Images, Tall Stories film club. You can find more details on the Facebook page for the event here. Narimane Mari will be at the screening for a Q&A after the film.

Here is the True Images, Tall Stories introduction to the evening: Narimane Mari's Bloody Beans (2013), is a strange fable from Algeria based on an episode from its war of independence. Sick of only ever getting beans, a group of children on the beach decide to kidnap a soldier and demand something better to eat... Sunsoaked, surreal and with a great electro soundtrack by Zombie Zombie, this film almost defies description and we are grateful to Narimane for kindly allowing us to show it for free.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
