Pumpkin Carving plus Screening of "Eyes without a Face"
Add to my Calendar Get DirectionsPrint This Event
Join us for happy hour! The 4th Friday of each month, we'll gather to screen public domain films in the film studio at Bridge Storage and ArtSpace. Please bring wine and snacks to share. This month, we'll start with a pumpkin carving competition in the garden at 6, followed by a screening of this classic, cheezy horror film at 7—a film which inspired the title of one of Billy Idol's big hits. LES YEUX SANS VISAGE Eyes Without a Face (French: Les Yeux sans visage) is a 1960 horror film adaptation of Jean Redon's novel, directed by Georges Franju, and starring Pierre Brasseur and Alida Valli. PLOTBrasseur plays a plastic surgeon who is determined to perform a face transplant on his daughter, who was disfigured in an auto crash. During the film's production, consideration was given to the standards of European censors by setting the right tone, minimizing gore and eliminating the mad scientist character. Although the film passed through the European censors, the film's release in Europe caused controversy nevertheless. Critical reaction ranged from praise to disgust.
