United Kingdom, 2020 / 94 Mins

Director: Emily Harris

Starring: Tobias Menzies, Jessica Raine, Greg Wise, Hannah Rae and Devrim Lingnau

Isolated from the outside world, fifteen-year-old Lara lives in seclusion on a vast country estate with her father and strict governess Miss Fontaine. Late one evening, a mysterious carriage crash brings a young girl into their home to recuperate. Lara immediately becomes enchanted by this strange visitor who arouses her curiosity and awakens her burgeoning desires. This film is Inspired by Sheridan Le Fanu's 1872 gothic novella of the same name.

Join us for a pre-screening Q&A with Carmilla writer and director Emily Harris hosted by Professor Deborah Shaw, University of Portsmouth.
Emily Harris is a filmmaker, photographer, writer, director and artist whose credits include a ground-breaking retrospective of David Bowie for the V&A. Carmilla was her first time taking a sole directorial credit, after co-directing Love Is Thicker Than Water (2016) with Ate de Jong. Across her work in the past, she’s always been a collaborator, and found co-directing natural, but Carmilla felt different. “This one made a lot of sense to do it by myself.”

Dr Deborah Shaw is Professor of Film and Screen Studies at the University of Portsmouth, and Research Lead for the School of Film, Media and Communication. Her research interests include transnational film theory, Latin American cinema, and film and migration, and she has published widely in these areas.
