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.
