‘To Sleep With Anger’ is a powerful mix of the mundane and the magical from one of America’s most underappreciated filmmakers. Gideon and Suzie are initially happy to see their old friend Harry when he turns up on their doorstep. They soon regret their offer of hospitality, however, when Harry’s arrival begins to exercise a strange, almost supernatural presence in the house. What exactly has Harry brought into the house with him, and will Suzie’s family survive it intact?
This screening was introduced with live music from Scots-Jamaican singer Brina.
