£4.00 On sale
Freak Orlando (Ulrike Ottinger, 1981) 2hr 6m
31/08 18:45 @ CCA Glasgow
In the form of a "small theater of the world", a history of the world from its beginnings to our day, including the errors, the incompetence, the thirst for power, the fear, the madness, the cruelty and the commonplace, in a story of five episodes by Ulrike Ottinger.
A rare chance to see Ulrike Ottinger's wonderful, bizarre reworking of Virginia Woolf’s Orlando and Tod Browning’s Freaks, starring Delphine Seyrig, Eddie Constantine, and Jackie Raynal. According to Shock Cinema Magazine, "A lost movie that lives up to its hype... A fever dream reimagining of Greek mythology, The Spanish Inquisition, and our modern life."
