Interested in the #ReadingTogether Challenge but don't have time to finish a whole book? This program is for you! Kanopy Club will be following the Yearlong Reading Challenge's August theme of Staff Picks, but we're turning it around and doing patron picks. We'll be watching and discussing films that were recommended by you! Find out more information about Reading Together here.
Watch the film on Kanopy then join us for a Zoom discussion. A Zoom invite will be emailed to you before the discussion.
About the Film
Working with elements of the traditional horror genre - second sight, ESP, warnings from the dead, a mad killer - and a cinematography of disquieting beauty and dreamlike sense of dislocation, director Nicolas Roeg weaves a fabric of anxiety that questions all reality.
The evocative use of the back streets of Venice is a sinister participant in the action based on the novel by Daphne du Maurier. This intensely erotic and macabre film boasts outstanding performances by Julie Christie and Donald Sutherland.
