Ink On Screen
INK ON SCREEN launches the Mayfair and St James festival with a double bill of films curated by remarkable British actor, Tobias Menzies (soon to star as Prince Phillip in The Crown, and star of Casino Royale, Outlander, Game of Thrones and others). Spotlighting the indelible link between cinema and the written word Tobias has chosen two of his favourite films, Jonathan Glazer’s haunting Under the Skin, starring Scarlett Johansson, and chilling 70’s classic Don’t Look Now with Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland helmed by famed director Nicholas Roeg.
Both books are based on novels and explore the indelible link between cinema and the written word, Under the Skin being penned by Michael Faber (The Crimson Petal and the White) and Don’t Look Now an adaptation from Daphne Du Maurier.
With introductory speeches and Q&As with key creative contributors to both films, this is an opportunity to delve into the world of word and moving image, and enjoy the fiercely personal film choices of one of our most talented and versatile actors.
The season is produced by Asterisk Films and Projects and will screen at Regent Street Cinema on October 28 and October 30.
