Lisandro Suriel: Ghost Island

Welcome to the eighth episode of our podcast series.

Jay and Calvin from Pity Party Film Club on taking control of the cinema, the joy of making other people laugh and films of female friendship.

About this podcast

Across this series, Gareth K Vile (Theatre Editor of The List Magazine, who also blogs wild critical theory here) chats to some of the amazing people who make, produce and contribute to our programme: from artists, curators and programmers, to community organisers and social clubs. We'll take a deep dive into exhibitions, gigs, performances and events - exploring the ideas and ethos that underpin our approach to programming and how you can get involved.
