Happy to announce that Zimbabwean writer and producer Mandla Rae will be performing a response to the film A Place of Rage at our Invisible Women: Mad as Hell screening. They are a queer intersectional feminist. Mandla’s performances are personal, poignant and succinct. Drawing from a place of reclaiming her power, Mandla constantly interrogates power dynamics.

Read our own Rachel's rebuttal to the short sighted comment “There are not a lot of female director’s period, and even less who are inclined to do horror” (Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions) here. The new season Women and Genre: Horror at Tyneside Cinema, showcases great examples of female filmmakers tackling horror cinema in unique, compelling and terrifying ways. Check out Rachel's article reminding the Jason Blum's of this world, who can't see what's right under their nose: the female gaze is deadlier than the male's.
