Film Preview: The Seashell and the Clergyman, 11 December, Cameo Cinema, Edinburgh

8 Dec

Steven Severin, founder member of Siouxsie & The Banshees and acclaimed solo artist, presents his new score to the 1928 Surrealist classic The Seashell and the Clergyman this Thursday, 11 December at Edinburgh’s Cameo Cinema.

Directed by Germaine Dulac from an original scenario by Antonin Artaud, this film was premiered in Paris on 9 February 1928.

Arguably the first example of Surrealist cinema, this dark, erotically-charged film is a hallucinatory story of tormented desire, guilt and conflict.
