Details

Followed by a Q&A with Alessia Zinari, specialist in Leonora Carrington and female surrealism and Dr Eamon McCarthy, in partnership with the University of Glasgow.

Shot in the contemporary art world, Female Human Animal is a darkly romantic psychothriller about a creative woman disenchanted with what modern life has to offer her. This is a truly hybrid adventure in film, taking a leaf from the invitation of the surrealists. Based around a real-life Tate retrospective of the surrealist Leonora Carrington, curated by Chloe Aridjis, the film takes Aridjis' ‘documentary reality’ as a leaping off point for putting on screen the imaginary life of her fears, dreams and desires, in ways that would otherwise remain inaccessible to the camera.
