examines the spy film myth. Focusing on the Eurospy genre, the talk will reveal
how Eurospy melds European identity, heroic tradition and technology into a
unique cultural entity.
5.45 pm 35mm Film Screening - Deadlier than
the Male (1966)
Recently shown on the beach at Cannes by Quentin Tarantino, this 60s spy gem
was voted top ten by The Eurospy Guide. A dizzying kaleidoscope of
deadly spy girls, terrorism, Mediterranean excitement, espionage thrills and
dangerous grooves, Deadlier then the Male is essential viewing.
7.45pm Illustrated Talk - Diabolik: European
An illustrated talk by Richard Rhys Davies charting the production and
influence of Mario Bava’s seminal Diabolik.
8.00 pm 35mm Film Screening - Diabolik
aka Danger: Diabolik (1968)
Diabolik is possibly the coolest film ever made. A fabulous mash up
of master criminal, super-spy and psychedelic genres, horror maestro Mario Bava
set the benchmark for the cool sixties flick.
