Q&A with "Prisoners of the Ghostland" Screenwriters
You’re invited to a very special evening! Aaron Hendry (screenwriter for Sion Sono’s Prisoners of the Ghostland) and Reza Sixo Safa (screenwriter and producer) will be at The Frida Cinema on September 18th. They will introduce the film at the latest 8:00 p.m. screening and will be hosting a Q&A session afterward. Please come join us as we witness Sion’s English-language debut alongside the writers that made the film possible. Feel free to come with questions to ask the actors-turned-screenwriters, Hendry (Inhumans) and Safa (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night), who have taken bold strides across their imagination with this post-apocalyptic script, further visualized by one of Japan’s most subversive auteur filmmakers, Sion Sono.
