Shuffle Film Festival: Monsters + Q&A With Gareth Edwards
A remarkable film, followed by a Q&A with a remarkable man
Shuffle Festival is an annual event which aims to build a more integrated community presence through art, comedy, music, food and film. Taking place in the The Horse Chestnut Glade, tonight’s film screening is Gareth Edwards' sc-fi thriller, Monsters. The film will be followed by a question and answer with Gareth Edwards himself. Six years after Earth has suffered an alien invasion a cynical journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through an infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border. Expect alien-invasions, relationship drama and strikingly beautiful effects. "Visually and sonically, this film should be the envy of shoestring guerrilla filmmakers the world over." – The Telegraph "An amazing achievement for a 'first-time' filmmaker, which measures up to the finest indies for performance and character-work, and the biggest blockbusters for jaw-dropping effects." – Empire Certificate: 12A. Runtime: 1 hour 34 minutes.
"A thrilling postmodern sci-fi."
