Secret Scary Movie Screening w/ Strictly Brohibited
October 23 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Women x Horror: a classic combo! Join Strictly Brohibited at 8pm (doors at 7:30) on Saturday, October 23 at Groundwork Somerville’s South Street Farm in Union Square for a secret scary screening!
While we can’t reveal the movie’s title, trust that it’ll be fun, feminist, and directed by a non-male filmmaker! This recent thriller combines elements of slasher, dark comedy, and magical realism into an allegory about everyday sexism. We’ll also be hosting a short post-film discussion for anyone interested.
This outdoor screening is free and open to the public, but we will be accepting donations for Groundwork Somerville’s future projects and events. Attendees are required to wear masks and observe social distancing. Bench seating is available but attendees may also bring their own chairs or picnic blankets. Outside food and drink is permitted.
Runtime: 83 minutes
Content Warning: Depictions of violence against women; some light gore
