The Turn of the Screw
Having changed the location of Henry James’ Victorian ghost story to present-day Wellington, director Alex Galvin presents audiences with a fresh adaption of The Turn of the Screw. Join us for a screening of the film, which will be releasing in select NZ cinemas Jan-Feb. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with members Alex Galvin (director) and Ed Sampson (editor/producer), alongside Greer Phillips (lead actor) and Emma Beale (producer).
The film follows a young actress, Julia, who is a last minute replacement in a theatre production of the Henry James classic The Turn of the Screw. Julia becomes immersed in the gothic horror production. As her terror increases, she suspects it’s not the fictitious house that’s haunted, but the theatre itself.
