Film curator Róisín Tapponi presents a screening of Mohammed Shebl’s 1981 film Anyab (Fangs).

A lost gem of Egyptian queer cinema, Anyab is an unfaithful remake of the musical cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Weaved into its camp aesthetics, horror tropes and 80s disco numbers, Anyab provides a running commentary on the social situation in Egypt, from youth unemployment to class struggle, while intersecting sexual politics into the mix.

Programme details:
Anyab (Fangs) (1981) 100 min. Arabic language with English subtitles.
Screenplay: Hassn Abd Raboo, Tarek Sharara, Mohammed Shebl.
Music: Hussien El Imam, Modi El Imam.
With: Ahmed Adawiyya, Ali El Haggar, Hasan El-Emam, Mona Gabr.

This event accompanies Nosferasta, the first UK commission by Brooklyn-based filmmakers Adam Khalil and Bayley Sweitzer in collaboration with Oba.

It's part of the European Cooperation project 4Cs: From Conflict to Conviviality through Creativity and Culture, co-funded by Creative Europe and the Royal College of Art.

Please note, there is no booking required and seating is on a first come, first served basis.
