29 - 31 July 2016: Beyond Lost & Beyond Love

Introduction by special guest Tony Grisoni and LFC curator Schtinter will be previewing excerpts from his new film on Brion Gysin, MICE featuring Iain Sinclair and Genesis P-Orridge. Lookout for our final announcement coming very soon!

A deep reading of the ancient "heroes" uncovers a fact lost to the history of cinema, except perhaps in this film: the adventures and achievements of our heroes – Theseus for example – happened long before the age of consent + Your husband and your son leave you? Escape into the infinite potential of your dreams, fantasies, and necessarily distorted memories + First love as a first look at the true potential of liberation. Forbidden, lost, the essence of life itself. An astounding debut from the recent millennium.
