Nasty Stuff: Prano Bailey-Bond

London Short Film Festival

“Fear and how we react to it fascinates me. It says a lot about a person. Why do some people enjoy horror whilst others avoid it, entirely unable to handle it?”

Final girls, freak flags and feminist sensibilities. In association with Underwire Film Festival, we present a retrospective of the curious horrors of Prano Bailey-Bond.

A gal with a taste for gore, raised on Twin Peaks and old school video nasties, Bailey-Bond’s work calls upon an earlier era of lower fi, Mary Whitehouse-condemned slashers blended up with a touch of fairytale to build evocative worlds, deceptively dreamlike in their fusing of a dark cinematic vocabulary and eerie allure.

Announced as one of Screen International’s 2018 Stars of Tomorrow, Prano’s first video nasty-centric feature Censor is currently in the works. We’re excited to screen her preceding short films and showcase a formidable woman carving space in a genre all too sparse of them.

Prano will be in conversation with Anna Bogutskaya (Underwire) following the screening.
