  • until 27th April @ ICA: Blank City

Fans of Jim Jarmusch, Nick Zedd and Gaspar Noe’s work, grab a ticket for one of the last few screenings of Celine Danhier’s 2011 documentary.  If you’re familiar with the No Wave movement, and more particularly if you’re not, this is a must-see.

  • 28th April @ Parsons Green: Film Fugitive Presents: Rear Window

If you’re not quite sure how an angel of the big screen (Grace Kelly), an unholy treatment of a terrifying subject (by Alfred Hitchcock), and painted glass and a pew (in St Dionis, Parsons Green) all fit together, why not find out for yourself? One of four pop-up cinema screenings by Film Fugitive for the Pull Up A Hitchcock Pew series.
