This fascinating compilation of short films, trailers and outtakes is a cinematic road race through 60 years of American drug-scare movie making!
See how pot, narcotics and hallucinogens were depicted on the silver screen from the Teens to the start of the 70s. From the giddy silent-era slapstick of ‘Mystery of the Leaping Fish’ to the preachy mid-50s moralism of ‘The Pusher’ to the horror-movie shocks of ‘Blue Sunshine’, it shows how filmmakers used comedy, fear, sensationalism and occasionally realism in their attempts to visualize the drug experience.
Wildly entertaining and screened on authentic 16mm, this is the ultimate “midnight movie” experience. Your popcorn is waiting!
Presented by Jack Stevenson.
The screening will take place in Husets Biograf on the 2nd floor.
