Get ready for some emotional journeys and pop along to the Alien Nation season of films at the Exeter Phoenix’s Studio 74 cinema.
Curated by Fabian’s Film, Alien Nation is a season of eight films exploring five subcultural themes: age, class, race, gender and disability. Plus they’re fab, absorbing films which accolades galore.
‘Though each film illustrates themes considered specific to a certain group, their narratives pinpoint the connections to issues which, as a society we can all identify,’ says the blurb.
The season kicks off with Metro Manila on Friday, November 18. Is followed by Ida (with shared screenplay credits from Devon’s own Rebecca Lenkiewicz).
The season of eight ends with Cloud on December 13. For tickets, times and more of the films (including a gander at those accolades) follow the links below.
There’s also an Alien Nation launch party at The Bike Shed Theatre, Exeter on Friday, November 18 at 10pm.
Fabian’s Film is a Community Interest Company based in Exeter.
‘Our mission is to make films which reflect the culturally diverse landscape of the British Isles; a form of Transnational British Film,’ they say. ‘This ethos extends to collaboration, providing opportunities for under-represented and marginalised communities in the UK.
‘We are also developing a mentoring strand to encourage young and emerging filmmakers to realise strong and unique personal visions’
