Following its sell-out launch last month, A Little Film Club continues with a screening of Pasolini’s Teorema at the Rio Cinema in Dalston. The monthly screening programme by Little Joe, a magazine about queers and cinema, mostly, is supported by Film London’s new Community Pilot Fund scheme.
A Little Film Club alternates between The Cinema Museum in Kennington and the Rio Cinema in Dalston and develops the concept of the magazine into an unique space for the exhibition and discussion of films that inspire alternative discourse.
Incorporating an eclectic programme of films mapping the subterranean queer canon of cinema, the screenings also feature extended introductions, discussions and social events. Teorema (Pier Paulo Pasolini, 1968) tells of a mysterious stranger (Terence Stamp) who insinuates himself into the home of a wealthy Italian family, where he exerts a curious, sensual spirituality over everyone in the household.
The screening will be introduced by John David Rhodes, Senior Lecturer in Literature and Visual Culture at Sussex University and author of Stupendous, Miserable City: Pasolini’s Rome. “It’s not important to understand Teorema, I leave it to the spectator…is the visitor God or is he the Devil? The important thing is that he is sacred, a supernatural being. He is something from beyond.” —Pier Paulo Pasolini
Little Joe’s A Little Film Club is supported by Film London’s Community Pilot Fund through National Lottery Funding on behalf of the BFI.
