We’re delighted to be presenting a matinee screening of Sandra, Luchino Visconti’s 1965 take on the Electra story, at the lovely ArtHouse Cinema in Crouch End on 13th August 2017.
When Sandra (Claudia Cardinale) returns to her family’s Tuscan estate with her new husband (Michael Craig), old secrets and long-held resentments rise to the surface. Sandra cannot forgive her mother for remarrying after her father’s murder at Auschwitz; nor can her intense relationship with brother Gianni (Jean Sorel) be ignored. Shot in dramatically stark black-and white, Visconti’s dark, troubling drama deserves to be seen on the big screen.
You can buy tickets on the door or online here. See you there!
