Capital Celluloid 2017 - Day 127: Mon May 8

Lemora: A Child's Tale of the Supernatural (Blackburn, 1975): Barbican Cinema, 8.45pm

This 16mm screening is part of the Cigarette Burns season 'Into The Woods' at the Barbican. You can find all the details of the season here.

Barbican introduction:
When angelic Lila Lee's gangster father is killed, she is lured to the town of Astaroth on the promise of their being reunited. On the way, Lila gets lost in the woods and is attacked by forest-dwelling creatures. The mysterious Lemora comes to her rescue and, taking Lila under her wing, escorts her onwards to Astaroth. Inevitably things do not go quite to plan… This obscure little independent American film, a City of the Dead inspired fairy-tale, features the singular and legendary Cheryl Rainbeaux Smith in one of her most loved roles.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
