Female Human Animal

+ Introduction by Dr Felicity Gee

Dir. Josh Appignanesi
73 Mins / UK 2018

Shot in the real-life contemporary art world, Female Human Animal is a darkly romantic psycho-thriller about a creative woman disenchanted with what modern life has to offer her.

When writer Chloe Aridjis curates the Tate retrospective of the surrealist Leonora Carrington, an elusive, brooding man appears, seeming to offer more. But as she descends into a world of obsession, is she hunter or hunted?

With the Volksbuhne’s Marc Hosemann, Patrick O’Kane (Game of Thrones) and Angus Wright (Peep Show), appearances from cultural figures like Juliet Jacques, Marina Warner, Adam Thirlwell, Stewart Home and Tom McCarthy, scored by Andy Cooke with new music from Tearist and the iconic O.M.D., Female Human Animal also pays homage to its guiding feminist spirit, the striking artist and writer Leonora Carrington.
