A free screening of a classic Taiwanese-language film, The Bride Who Has Returned from Hell.
Made in 1965 and adapted from Victoria Holt’s novel, Mistress of Mellyn, this film embodies the Taiwanese-language film industry’s enthusiasm for exploring new stories, fresh elements, and foreign influences. The ‘who-done-it’ narrative combines family melodrama’s rifts, risks, and restoration of domestic order with suspense, mystery, romantic entanglement, and supernatural elements of Gothic romance. Highly enjoyable.
The event will be introduced by Dr Ming-Yeh Rawnsley (SOAS, University of London). There will also be a post-screening discussion with Ms Teresa Huang, Director of Restoration, Taiwan Film Institute.

Beautifully made, perfectly judged in every way, Kaurasmaki’s wonderfully droll humour is perfectly suited to this sweet story of a Syrian refugee taken in by the good people of Helsinki. Both hysterical and heartbreaking, this charming, humane comedy is enough to give you hope!

WOW FILM CLUB and GENTLE/RADICAL invite you to a Halloween night of food, short films and discussion for and about young people. We want to start a conversation about what young people want to see happening in our city.
How do we make spaces for you as young people?
How does our culture reflect and support you?
How can your voices be heard, how can adults listen?
This event is a chance for young people, and those who work with you, to get together and discuss what a radical future for young people might look like.
It's Halloween, so our film shorts are themed around some scary stuff: ghosts, ghouls, but also some of the scary things young people are facing today - from police checks to lack of job opportunities, from body image to Islamaphobia...
This get together is about watching short films, sharing food, and discussing your aspirations, frustrations, and how to deal with the challenges of living in a society that doesn't know how to value your voice
All young people welcome (that means up to 25, and we're flexible if you're a little older!)
6.00pm - 9.00pm, Wednesday November 1st
56 Machen Place, Riverside CF11 6EQ
PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU'RE ATTENDING so we get enough food in (food will be Halal).
