Following our first live and very animated podcast recording, our hosts, along with our audience, discussed the relevance of cult classic Twilight; a film that showcases a darkly stylish depiction of female desire wrapped inside an inherently silly teen vampire romance. Like it or not this romance saga had us hooked from the beginning and was undoubtedly a cinematic marker in all our lives, one way or another. Find out how Twilight shaped our audience’s proclivity to fall for the wrong men, led to creating their own fan club and even a drinking game… did someone say spider-monkey?
Partnership with MUBI

Celebrating the 50th-anniversary re-release of his mystical magnum opus The Holy Mountain, the three-part retrospective The Alchemy Of Alejandro Jodorowsky presents brand-new, stunning 4K restorations of a trio of the most influential classics by one of world cinema’s most fabled iconoclasts. Often venerated as the ultimate cult film director, father of the ‘midnight movie’ and self-described “Cecil B. DeMille of the underground,” the Chilean artist shot to prominence as a 1970s counter-cultural icon thanks to the masterful movies presented in this selection: Fando y Lis, El Topo and The Holy Mountain. These extraordinary films bedazzled audiences, including early adopters John Lennon and Yoko Ono, with their unique aesthetic, contrasting violence and beauty; the sublime and the sacrilegious; the mystical and the macabre.
