Anna Biller directs this horror comedy starring Samantha Robinson, Jeffrey Vincent Parise and Laura Waddell which pays homage to the Technicolor thrillers of the 1960s and 70s. A young and beautiful witch named Elaine (Robinson) uses her magic to devise spells and craft concoctions which will grant her what she desires: a man who loves her. Inconveniently however, her creations work too well and every man she seduces ends up dead. She finally finds the perfect man for her, but her willful desire to feel loved may send her over the edge and into a heady brew of passion, madness and death.  

The introduction to this screening will be provided by writer Basje Boer, offering insightful perspectives on women’s portrayal onscreen, in relation to the films’ themes of love, power and the occult.

    Route naar LAB111

    LAB111 is een filmtheater en restaurant gevestigd op de Arie Biemondstraat in de Kinkerbuurt in Amsterdam-west. Met openbaar vervoer is LAB111 te bereiken via Tram 1 en 11 naar halte Jan Pieter Heijestraat (5 min. lopen), tram 3 naar halte Overtoom (8 min. lopen) en tram 7 of 17 naar halte Ten Katestraat (5 min. lopen). Kom je met de auto? Maandag t/m zondag betaal je van 9:00 (zondag vanaf 12:00 uur) tot 24:00 zes euro per uur. 

    Vanwege de vele trappen in het monumentale pand is LAB111 helaas moeilijk toegankelijk voor rolstoelgebruikers. Er is geen lift in het pand aanwezig.
