In honour of our special guest, Alice Lowe, we are taking the opportunity to screen Prevenge, the film she wrote, directed and starred in while 7 months pregnant. Described as a "pitch black, wryly British comedy" Prevenge follows Ruth, a pregnant woman on a killing spree that's as funny as it is vicious. It's her misanthropic unborn baby dictating Ruth's actions, holding society responsible for the absence of a father. The child speaks to Ruth from the womb, coaching her to lure and ultimately kill her unsuspecting victims. Struggling with her conscience, loneliness, and a strange strain of prepartum madness, Ruth must ultimately choose between redemption and destruction at the moment of motherhood.

Critics

“Lowe has created a uniquely quirky filmmaking niche and it;s a film that could only have been made with a woman's sensibility with its underlying theme of the fear that expecting a baby means that there's been a 'hostile takeover' of her body.”
