Matchbox Cineclub is back! We’re bringing our VIDEO ON event to Sofi’s in Edinburgh in a four-week residency. Every Monday evening in August, we invite you into Sofi’s back room while we stick a tape on – the kind you might once have set to record overnight, never suspecting what rare treats you would capture as you slept. Each programme is themed to a cult film director – four weeks, four tapes – every one full of strange delights: adverts, oddities, ephemera and lost treasure.
Week 1: “ABSURD”
Week 2: “TRASH”
Week 3: “CHAOS”
Week 4: “BLOOD”
On Monday 04/08/14, the intrepid few are invited to immerse themselves in the tape marked “ABSURD”. The exact content will be a mystery until after the event, but expect an exclusive cornucopia of David Lynch rarities and other complementary content. Later weeks are dedicated to John Waters, Werner Herzog and Quentin Tarantino.
