Event Details

Film censor Enid (Niamh Algar) takes her work seriously, recommending the redaction of extremely violent, bloody and sexually explicit scenes for censorship. Her sense of duty is reinforced by feelings of guilt from her childhood, the mysterious disappearance of her sister still weighing heavily on her. Enid has never given up the search for her younger sibling, so when a film from the archives rekindles fresh memories, it leads her to embark on a nightmarish quest during which the lines between fiction and reality become terrifyingly blurred.

Set in the 1980s, when the media-hyped debate about the effect of violent videos on society was at its peak and the Thatcher government was tightening censorship, director Prano Bailey-Bond’s debut is a bloody ode to the aesthetics of horror films that looks at trauma, delusion and the power of images.
