Angelina Jolie Cringe! Film Fest Day 2: Gia, Interrupted
  • London Fringe

Join us for part 2 of our oppositional-spectatorship fest and think-in, the first officially Cringe! Event: the Angelina Jolie Cringe! Film Fest.

Over 2 double bills of 90s cult films, we trace the journey of one Hollywood princess from heroin chic & bisexuality, to hetero-matrimony & transracial adoption. From great, complex, iconic roles in counter-cultural crossover hits, to this. Find out why, at our 2 day think-in and oppositional viewing party.

Dress up very welcome. All of today's fashion is influenced by these 4 films anyway!

Day 2 is all about glamour, tragedy, excess, nudity. This is Gia, Interrupted.

You might know Gia from being the lesbian film with Angelina Jolie in, sold on DVD in the back pages of Diva, and screenshotted all over the place, but its an underrated film, both gritty and fluffy, fun and fated. Much like the model Gia Carangi herself. And indeed like Jolies place in sapphic hearts around the world.

The final film of our festival, Girl, Interrupted, won the brother-snogging Jolie an Oscar, and features an almost unbelievable cast of stars: Whoopi Goldberg to Vanessa Redgrave, an early Elizabeth Moss, and the late great Brittany Murphy.

Join us as we take a dive off the deep end of one womans rebellious youth, just before she began Tomb Raiding, and became Mrs. Smith.

Programme supported by Film Hub London, managed by Film London. Proud to be a partner of the BFI Film Audience Network, funded by the National Lottery. www.filmlondon.org.uk/filmhub

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
