Session 1
Time: 1pm at The Masonic Temple
Electric sheep presents: The Dead Eyes of London + Talk

  Cigarette Burns presents: The Case of the Scorpion’s Tail (16MM) Directed by Sergio Martino, this 1971 film, in a deliciously macabre setting paired with a lustrous 16mm projection, makes this a rare opportunity to sample this devilishly entertaining 70s thriller as a millionaire dies in a mysterious freak accident leaving his widow set to enjoy the rich spoils.

Guests will investigate the stories behind some of history’s most renowned sects, whether their leaders were eccentric megalomaniacs or at the centre of government control.
