RED PSALM screening - Wednesday September 21st, 8pm (doors 7pm) at Deptford Cinema, SE8
Depicting a series of peasant uprisings in Hungary in the late 19th century, RED PSALM celebrates the cause of revolutionary struggle. Inspired by folklore and song, Jancsó's camera travels amongst groups of moving figures in an elaborate cinematic ballet and his singular use of film form achieves a resonance and beauty that is extraordinary.
Radical in execution and poetic in its achievement, RED PSALM reaches beyond political dogma to expose a more universal, and deeper, truth that appears ever-more relevant today.
