THE BOOK OF BIRDIE | UK | 2017 | 90 minutes | Dir: Elizabeth E. Schuch | Unclassified (no one under 16 admitted unless accompanied an adult) | Australian premiere
When a fragile, imaginative teenager is placed in a dying convent, will her unusual obsessions and hallucinations become a mark of sainthood or a dark heresy?
The Book of Birdie is the visually stunning and highly original feature debut of a filmmaker to watch. Elizabeth Schuch is a concept and storyboard artist with credits including Pacific Rim: Uprising and Wonder Woman.
Elizabeth Schuch will be present for a post-screening Q&A.
The Book of Birdie will be opened by an encore screening of award-winning meta marvel short film Nuncersion II, directed by Alex Laird and Scott Gerry Edwards, (Timebois). Inspired by ‘nunsploitation’ films, Nuncersion II won both the Jury Award for Best Film and the Audience Choice Award at this year’s 48-Hour Tasploitation Challenge. Both filmmakers will be in attendance at the screening.
