Until 30 May at the British Film Institute, Southbank
BFI and Cinecittà present a new season celebrating the unique visions of the Italian cult filmmaker at BFI Southbank, featuring special guest appearances from Dario Argento and 17 brand new 4K restorations, courtesy of Cinecittà.
For over five decades, Dario Argento has produced some of horror’s most beautifully nightmarish imagery – from the sleek, stylish shocks of his hugely influential crime thrillers, through to the gothic phantasmagoria of his occult horrors, and everything in between. Audiences will be able to hear about Argento’s long and storied career during Dario Argento in Conversation on 12 May, as well as during introductions and Q&As that Argento will give alongside screenings of some of most iconic films, including his soaring debut THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE (1970), sophomore whodunit THE CAT O’ NINE TAILS (1971), Freudian nightmare DEEP RED (1975), the gamechanging masterpiece SUSPIRIA (1977), the icy meta-giallo TENEBRAE (1982), his only feature-length American production TRAUMA (1993), and many more. Curated by Michael Blyth.
