Reclaim The Frame/ Revenge + Post-Screening Discussion at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 20 May 2018, from £5.50 - Visit now

Writer-director Coralie Fargeat’s debut feature Revenge arrives at HOME this Sunday for a special screening organised by women-in-film campaigners, Birds Eye View. Fargeat’s thriller is part of a new 4 film/5 city Reclaim The Frame Influencers project which aims to bring audiences to films by women in order to redress the film industry’s gender imbalance.

Revenge is a stylish and provocative rape-revenge thriller that has been garnering rave reviews from critics for smartly subverting a disreputable sub-genre that has historically been dominated by male filmmakers. Described by The Hollywood Reporter as “both tautly controlled and wildly over-the-top” the film boasts a star turn by Matilda Lutz, alongside a retro synth score and hallucinogenic, day-glo imagery.

For the Reclaim The Frame event at HOME, Birds Eye View’s Mia Bays, an Oscar-winning producer (Six Shooter by Martin McDonagh, BAFTA-nominated Scott Walker – 30 Century Man), programme curator Joanna Duncombe of BEV and Dr Kirsty Fairclough of the University of Salford will appear in conversation with each other, and the audience, following the film.
