Matchbox Cineclub
Weird Weekend | Anti-Clock

Sun 1 September 2019

Joseph Sapha, gambler and mind-reader, born 1953, guinea pig for audio-video parapsychology conference in London, led by Professor JD Zanov, witnesses his 'dream' and 'real' world in the video laboratory. How far can he control his destiny? How far can he define his future?

Jane Arden's rarely screened masterpiece, based on her writings on the limitations of rational thought (and co-directed with Jack Bond), mixes pioneering video techniques with pin-sharp colour footage in order to create a densely-woven, dream-like narrative which explores issues of personal identity and social conformity.

This screening will be captioned for the deaf and hard of hearing.
