A large group of students and staff gathered in the Bill Douglas Cinema in Queens Building to watch an advance screening of the glorious documentary “Scala!!! Or, the Incredibly Strange Rise and Fall of the World’s Wildest Cinema and How It Influenced a Mixed-up Generation of Weirdos and Misfits” (to give it it’s full title), along with a Q&A with the directors Ali Caterall and (via Zoom) Jane Giles. The discussion was chaired by Exeter’s Honorary Professor of Film Mark Kermode.
The audience thoroughly enjoyed the showing, and there were some pertinent questions and discussions about the value of spaces in which everyone feels safe, and the risks and benefits of risk-taking.
