To celebrate the opening of it’s cinemas after an extensive refurbishmment The Brabican Centre has created a series of special showings entitled Step Into The Dark, running Nov 2-Dec 9.
Seven Deadly Sins is the centerpiece of the Step into the Dark season and explores ideas of excess, disturbance and derangement, and how these lead to the crossing of accepted boundaries and the notion of sin.
The Barbican has invite visual artists, musicians, theatre directors and writers to select their favourite films based on a sin and take the audience on a journey through unsettling storylines, Dantesque imagery and strong, charismatic characters. These celebrated figures will join us in conversation after the film to discuss their sinful choices.
Brazil is well represented with Marcos Jorge’s “Estômago: A Gastronomic Story”, film about a world in which there are two kinds of people – those who eat and those who get eaten. Raimundo Nonato, the protagonist, finds an alternative way somewhere in the middle: he cooks. This award winning dark comedy is an adult tale of power, sex and culinary art.
For the full list of films (and sins!) check out the Barbican’s Step into the Dark official website.
