‘Knitting and catastrophe in cinema’? Sounds like the perfect evening to me!



Join us on Monday the 25th of March for an evening of film and discussion on the theme of ‘Threads: Un/ravelling Space’.

Featuring a rare screening of “wild but gentle” fantasy film Wool 100% (2006), directed by Mai Tominaga, in which two aging junk-collecting sisters return home one day to discover a stranger knitting a red dress in their house. We’ll also be screening Jenni Nelson’s documentary short Tightly Knit (2010), which explores the story of three passionate characters obsessed with knitting, introducing contemporary trends in a vibrant knitting community.

Plus Dr. Jonathan Faiers on knitting and catastrophe in cinema, Perri Lewis on knitting’s ‘scene’ in London, and a discussion chaired by Laura Price and Professor Philip Crang from Royal Holloway, University of London.

And if you’d like, please feel free to bring any knitting/craft to work on whilst watching the talks and films!

Kicks off at 7.30pm on Monday the 25th…
