Event description

Description


Manchester Classical Association presents a special screening of Erik Knudsen's 'Cleft Lip' (2018), a 21st century retelling of the Oedipus myth which asks the question of 'what happens when fertility becomes a commodity in a fractured society?'. We're lucky enough to be joined by the film's director for this event, which will also feature his introduction to the film and a Q&A session with the audience.

The event will run from 6-8pm, with refreshments available from 5.30pm. Our venue is 70 Oxford Street, Manchester Metropolitan University - an original cinema screen in the old CornerHouse Cinema, Oxford Road.

The screening is free and open to all but pre-booking is essential due to limited space, so please do RSVP in advance via Eventbrite. You can watch a trailer and find out more about the film's awards and acclaimations here: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/cleftlip/237971482


The cinema is largely in its original condition, which is wonderful but also can be a little chilly, so be sure to bring a jumper!
