Film Night: Orphee
December 11 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm£6.50
In this classic 1950 film, directed by Jean Cocteau, a fight breaks out at the Café des Poètes in Paris, between the poet Orphée (Jean Marais) and a group of resentful upstarts. A rival poet, Cègeste (Edouard Dermithe), is killed, and a mysterious princess (María Casares) insists on taking Orpheus and the body away in her Rolls-Royce. Orphée soon finds himself in the underworld, where the Princess announces that she is, in fact, Death. Orpheus escapes in the car back to the land of the living, only to become obsessed with the car radio.
