High-Rise, Green Room and a Late Night David Bowie Disco all feature on the LWLies Cinedrome bill.
We’re thrilled to be bringing the LWLies Cinedrome back to Green Man Festival August 18-21 in the spectacular setting of the Brecon Beacons, Wales, offering another delectable mix of modern cinema spectacles and revived cult classics.
A Bigger Splash is Luca Guadagnino’s sun-splashed Italian thriller, starring Tilda Swinton as a mute rockstar and Ralph Fiennes as her unscrupulous ex-lover. The savage tower block dystopia of High-Rise provides a brilliantly bleak counterbalance – based on the classic novel by JG Ballard, Ben Wheatley’s adaptation features violent class warfare and deliciously dark comedy.
Continuing Green Man’s tradition of showcasing unmissable live film scores, we’re excited to be presenting a rare screening of the 1973 cult animation Fantastic Planet, accompanied by a brand new live soundscape performed by Asteroid Deluxe. We’re also bringing Fritz Lang’s expressionist sci-fi masterpiece Metropolis with an acclaimed live piano score from Dmytro Morykit, and Aiden Moffat’s new documentary Where You’re Meant To Be comes complete with a solo set from the Arab Strap legend himself.
All that plus Janis: Little Blue Girl, the revelatory documentary on the life of Janis Joplin; Jeremy Saulnier’s brilliant backwoods horror Green Room, which harks back to the scariest American B-movie slashers; a new restoration of Expresso Bongo, the scathing 1959 music industry satire starring Cliff Richard; Disney•Pixar’s joyously emotional animated marvel Inside Out; Welsh mentalists Casey & Ewan return to Green Man with their eclectic Crystal Massage; and Nic Roeg’s starman odyssey The Man Who Fell to Earth, which stars the sorely missed David Bowie. And we’re inviting you to put on your red shoes and dance the blues at Let’s Dance – our Late Night David Bowie Disco.
We’ll be announcing the full LWLies Cinedrome line-up soon, so stay tuned and in the meantime check out the full Green Man programme at greenman.net
