PANEL:

Billie Walker is a London-based writer who enjoys Campari-based drinks as bitter as she is. There will always be a horror film on her laptop and feta in the fridge. She devours books as frequently as salty cheeses. See more of her work on her website here and on twitter @billierwalker

Carley Arnold spent the last decade in Austin, TX working in outdoor education and local government, advocating for the needs of underserved communities. Her undergraduate degree in Feminist Studies focused on femininity, queer theory, and film & theatre as tools of oppression-resistance and community-building. Now based in the UK, she’s pursuing a graduate degree in ethnobotany, researching digital botanical spaces in vibrant video gaming and table-top RPG communities.

Daisy Butcher is a PhD candidate and Visiting Lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire and a member of the Open Graves, Open Minds project. She is currently writing up her thesis which compares the female body horror present in female mummy and floral femme fatale gothic short stories of the nineteenth century and modern TV and Film. She has published a range of material on vampires, mummies and killer plants including peer reviewed articles for Synapsis: A Health Humanities Journal and an edited anthology for the British Library’s Tales of the Weird series entitled Evil Roots: Killer Tales of the Botanical Gothic (2019). Forthcoming are another edited collection for the British Library co-edited with Janette Leaf entitled Crawling Horror: Creeping Tales of the Insect Weird (2021) and a chapter in a collection based on OGOM’s ‘Some curious disquiet’: Polidori, the Byronic vampire and its progeny’ symposium on the role of women in early vampire tales as victims and demonic bloodsuckers.

RUN TIME: 90+ mins including a 15 minute break.

After watching so many films alone this year, RAR wanted to create an online community space for people to discuss a film all together. Through a discerning panel of guests, we’ll talk about a chosen film's meaning, context and general pleasurable or unpleasurable-ness. We’ll then open up the floor and give you, the audience, a chance to ask any questions and start your own discussions. 

While we all love big budget blasts, this space will be somewhere we examine films without as much limelight, choices that you might already love or never have heard of before. We hope through Film Club you’ll meet fellow-minded, radical fans, including our team, and hear some interesting film chat. See you at the screen :)
