The Rio Cinema in Dalston, London, will be showing a Velvet Onion-flavoured double bill this Sunday, with a combined screening and Q&A for Aaaaaaaah! and Prevenge.
With both films emerging from of the hearts and minds of two of our favourite people, and each of them featuring a whole host of TVO faces, we reckon this is a must-see cinematic event.
Aaaaaaaah!, the directorial debut from Steve Oram, screens at 2pm. It’s an anarchic, bold and surreal look at the human condition, which is hilarious and disturbing in equal measures. Tom Meeten, Julian Barratt, Noel Fielding and Sean Reynard star alongside Steve in this truly original film. To find out what we thought about it when it was released, check out our review.
Prevenge, the directorial feature debut from Alice Lowe, Steve’s co-writer and co-star in Sightseers, screens afterwards at 4pm. In addition to Alice, you’ll also spot Tom Meeten, Tom Davis, Gemma Whelan, Mike Wozniak, Dan Skinner and Kayvan Novak in the film. The darkly funny and frequently shocking story of a pregnant woman on a killing spree (in the form of the actually-pregnant Alice) has been a huge critical success, and rightly so. Take a look at our review to find out why.
You can find out more and book tickets here. If you put tickets for both films in your basket you’ll get 2 for 1 at the check out. Bargain! Don’t forget that there will be a Q&A after each of the films too – the perfect chance to ask Steve and Alice what on earth was going on in their heads when they came up with the ideas…
