MONDO NIGHTS X SCI-FI-LONDON PRESENTS: M.A.D:
A TERRIFYING and beautiful DOUBLE BILL of NUCLEAR FACTS and NUCLEAR FICTIONS, in association with MONDO NIGHTS, the WEIRDEST IN WORLD CINEMA.
The machinery of the cold war, aged, gathering dust, and with apocalyptic potential have suddenly returned to utility with the Russian war on Ukraine. And now we are forced to wrestle with the implications.
To this end we are very happy, but also terrified, to be screening:
THE WAR GAME (1966) from PETER WATKINS. A DOCU-DRAMA hybrid that looks at the effects of a nuclear war on the British public.
THE BUNKER of the LAST GUNSHOTS (1981) from MARC CARO and JEAN-PIERRE JEUNET, a film that delivers some post-apocalyptic absurdity.
This will be screened with a LIVE SCORE from HARPAL MUDHAR, who will synthesise the INCENDIARY SOUNDS of nuclear war into the score and SOUND DESIGN of the EXPERIMENTAL film.
