Anja Kirschner, Moderation at GFF17

Fri 24 Feb 2017 / 8–10pm

CCA Cinema, Glasgow

Set in Egypt, Greece and Italy, Moderation (2016) revolves around a female horror director and a screenwriter whose latest collaboration is haunted by encounters with its ‘raw material’ and the escalation of conflicting desires.

Faced with the disintegration of their project, the director becomes more and more drawn into conversations with the actors she has cast, which reflect on the way horror traverses the affective and material realities of their lives on and off the screen.

Followed by a Q&A with director Anja Kirschner, actress Michele Valley and director of LUX Scotland, Nicole Yip.

This screening is part of GFT’s Crossing the Line strand, presented by Glasgow Film Festival and LUX Scotland.

For Glasgow Film Festival 2017, Anja Kirschner will also host a Masterclass and Workshop as part of our SUPERLUX programme and take part in a Q&A following the screening of Morning Patrol by Nikos Nikolaidis, which is referenced in Kirschner’s Moderation.
