Join us April 19 at 10pm as online horror site DreadCentral.com returns with a fantastic installment of their Dread Central Presents series at The Frida, as writer-director Natasha Kermani joins us in-person with her original sci-fi feature Imitation Girl!
Lauren Ashley Carter stars in this 2017 film festival favorite in the dual roles of Julianna, an adult film star who’s beginning to question her career, and of a mysterious alien who’s taken on Julianna’s form. A film full of surprises that would be a crime to spoil, Imitation Girl is a compelling sci-fi examination of love, sex, race, identity and the human condition.
Screening will be followed by an in-person filmmaker Q&A with writer-director Natasha Kermani!
Thursday, April 19 – 10pm
“An exploration of feminine self and otherness, beyond the male gaze. It has something in common with Jonathan Glazer’s ‘Under The Skin,’ although it substitutes that film’s near constant sense of menace and predation with poetic insight and wonderment.” – Anton Bitel, SciFiNow
“Beautifully filmed, thoughtful and dreamlike, Imitation Girl is an impressive piece of work.” – Jennie Kermode Eye for Film
