The Holy Mountain
Dir. Alejandro Jodorowsky

In a corrupt, greed-fueled world, a powerful alchemist leads a Christ-like character and seven materialistic figures to the Holy Mountain, where they hope to achieve enlightenment. Personaly funded by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, the 'scandal of the Cannes Film Festival' is back.

The Devils
Dir. Ken Russell

In 17th-century France, Father Urbain Grandier seeks to protect the city of Loudun from the corrupt establishment of Cardinal Richelieu. Hysteria occurs within the city when he is accused of witchcraft by a sexually repressed nun. Still inexplicably suppressed from a proper, uncut release by Warner Bros.

Pictures 35 years after its original release, we are making sure this rare British masterpiece about the danger of the marriage between church and state continues to find new eyes. (Note: screening the BFI/UK ‘X’ certificate version).
