It’s down to the fourth quarter, what can the Fringes pull out of the bag to end the year on a high. Each strand is hitting a slam dunk! Here’s the delights in store for you!
Bread And Roses
Bread and Roses and Fright Club cross paths in this screening of the 1981 documentary The Killing Of America. Graphic and shocking the film focuses on what is felt by the creative team as the decline of America, with interviews with serial killers and assassination footage. The film straddles the line between hard hitting, shocking documentary about the need for gun control in the USA (in 1981!) and a ‘mondo’ style shockumentary!
We are delighted to be welcoming Cult Film Historian Darrell Buxton to discuss with the Bread And Roses team that fine line between documentary and exploitation.
The Killing Of America (18) + post screening discussion – Tuesday 1st November

For the final three Satori Screenings of the year, regular host Peter Munford will has a range of previews and rarely seen gems.
First up in October is a Preview of Lowlife Love, a fantastically funny and searing comedy drama about the down and dirty world of low budget filmmaking.
Then in November we present a very special cinema screening of Belladonna Of Sadness, the ground-breaking and unjustly forgotten adult-oriented and feminist slanted anime film. Head’s up, it’s a bit naughty!
And rounding out the year in serious, important canonical cinema we have Virgins From Hell which continues in the vein of past Christmas Satori Screen shows like Lady Terminator and For Y’ur Height Only. A glorious concoction of shoot outs, stunts and leopard print leotards!
Lowlife Love – Friday 21st October at 8:45pm
Belladonna Of Sadeness – Friday 18th November at 8:45pm
Virgins From Hell – Friday 8th December at 8:45pm
