April 17 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm KST
The Devils (1971) a British historical drama horror film directed by Ken Russell and starring Oliver Reed and Vanessa Redgrave is a critique on abuse of political power and is as relevant today as it was then. This film is the second film in our list that was banned in several countries at its release because of its staunch criticism of the catholic institution. Adapted from John Whiting’s 1960 play “The Devils” and Aldous Huxley’s 1952 novel, The Devils of Loudun the film is based on the true story of the trial of Urbain Grandier, a Catholic priest who was executed in 1634 on charges of witchcraft
