A feverish collision of avant-garde aesthetics and grind-house shocks (not to mention a direct influence on Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange), Funeral Parade Of Roses takes us on an electrifying journey into the nether-regions of the late-60’s Tokyo underworld. In Toshio Matsumoto’s controversial debut feature, seemingly nothing is taboo: neither the incorporation of visual flourishes straight from the worlds of contemporary graphic design, painting, comic books, and animation; not the unflinching depiction of nudity, sex, drug use, and public toilets. But of all the ‘transgressions’ here on display, perhaps one in particular stands out the most: the film’s groundbreaking and unapologetic portrayal of Japanese gay subculture.

Screening times:
Friday 14 September at 6:10pm
Saturday 15 September at 8:00pm

Tickets – £9 standard, £7 concessions, £3.50 16 – 25 year olds (bring DOB evidence)

This screening is part of the Uprising: Spirit Of 68 – Yes We Cannes! season.

1968 somehow managed to cram in a decade’s worth of news into one year, from the Prague spring to the Paris riots, from the Tet Offensive to the killings of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy. The UK saw student protests flare up on campuses across the country and rising tension in the wake of Enoch Powell’s ‘Rivers of Blood’ speech, while in June a machinist strike at Dagenham’s Ford plant heralded a burgeoning women’s movement and paved the way for the Equal Pay Act.

We are looking at range of films that explore cinema and the legacy of 1968, as well as screening two selections from the infamously cancelled Cannes 1968 selection.
