Exclamation Shameless Screen Entertainment and Filmbar70 Double Bill

Thursday 25 August 7PM Roxy Bar & Screen

Shameless Screen Entertainment and Filmbar70 are proud to present two magnificent slices of Eurocentric cinema as part of the Scala Forever season – the pop art sensation The Frightened Woman and Lucio Fulci’s giallo masterpiece Don’t Torture a Duckling.

Expect plenty more Shameless goodness on the night – including give aways and a quiz that will test your knowledge to its upmost limits…

Piero Schivazappa Italy 1969

The battle of the sexes has never been more stylish than in this pop-art fantasia starring uber vixen Dagmar Lassander. When a high-powered misogynist kidnaps a beautiful underling to subject to a course of degradation, he finds that the force of the feminine proves more powerful than he could ever perceive...

An incredible feast for the eyes, and featuring one of Stelvio Cipriani’s all time best scores, The Frightened Woman takes late ‘60s flirtation with S&M to dizzying, flabbergasting heights.

Lucio Fulci Italy 1972

From the very first scene, Fulci’s sweeping giallo tackles the effect rampant modernisation has on rural mentality. A large-canvas, slow-burning epic, Fulci dispels the notion that he is simply a blood and guts merchant. And when the blood and guts do surface, they are with tempered with one of the most heart-rending scenes in cinema.

Beautifully lensed, Duckling benefits from a feverish performance by Florinda Bolkan and features the lovely Barbara Bouchet at her all time sexiest – an absolute must for fans of Gialli, Fulci and Italian cinema in general…

Tickets £6 / £3 Roxy members

Roxy Bar and Screen, 128-132 Borough High Street, London SE1 1LB.
