On Monday 13 December, Depot will host a Q&A session with local director Camille Griffins following a screening of her new horror-comedy, Silent Night, starring Kiera Knightly and Matthew Goode.
Synopsis: In true British fashion, a group of old friends reunite to celebrate Christmas in the comfort of an idyllic country home – while the rest of the world faces impending doom. Burdened with the inconvenience of mankind’s imminent destruction, they adopt a stiff upper lip, crack open another bottle of prosecco and continue with their festivities. But no amount of stoicism can replace the courage needed for their last night on earth.
Silent Night is Camille Griffins first feature film, and premiered at The Toronto International Film Festival 2021. It recently won Best Screenplay and The Audience Award in the official selection at The Sitges’ International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia.
Camille is currently developing two further feature films – a Keira Knightley project with Searchlight Pictures, Celine Rattray and Trudie Styler producing and a Netflix science fiction film with Simon Kinberg and Audrey Chon producing – after having written and directed 7 short films that screened at over 20 International film festivals.
Tickets for Silent Night (including Q&A session) are available at lewesdepot.org
