This week at the SFC: The Red Shoes

Thursday August 10th

The Red Shoes (Michael Powell & Emeric Pressburger/UK/1948/134')

STUDIOFILMCLUB is pleased to be screening Powell and Pressburger's THE RED SHOES. Last year's screening of the same duo's Black Narcissus was certainly one of SFC's most memorable presentations. The Red Shoes is the tragic and romantic story of Vicky Page, the brilliant young dancer who must give up everything if she is to become a great ballerina. It is Powell and Pressburger's most famous film. Creators of classics such as Black Narcissus, A Matter of Life and Death, and The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, they were renowned for their use of brilliant colour and wonderful costumes, and, with the exhilarating cinematography of Jack Cardiff, were among the most influential film makers of their time. The Red Shoes is one of the finest examples of their work, and has become an inspiration to artists, film makers and musicians all over the world.
