Live introduction Friday 16 October at 20:30
An atmospheric, coming-of-age love story steeped in eerie mystery; a reimagining of Sheridan La Fanu's 19th century novella of the same name. 15 year old Lara lives with her father and her strict governess, Miss Fontaine, in total isolation and is struggling to find an outlet for her curiosity and burgeoning sexuality. When a carriage crash nearby brings a young girl into the family home to recuperate, Lara is enchanted by the eponymous Carmilla.
Shot on location in and around Lewes and Plumpton. The Regional Premiere will take place at Depot.
'Harris drinks deep of the novella's sapphic themes to present a tale of obsession and fear of 'the other'' - Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
