Join us for a post-screening discussion on The Lighthouse with Dr Ben Smith, author of Doggerland and lecturer in Creative Writing, Plymouth University, and Tracey Warr, Head of Learning Programmes and Research at Dartington Arts School.

From Robert Eggers, visionary filmmaker behind modern horror masterpiece The Witch, comes this fantastically atmospheric 1890s-set tale of two lighthouse keepers on a remote and mysterious New England island who, faced with solitude, begin to lose their grip on reality.

With superb performances from its stars Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe, shot in shimmering 35mm black and white with a daring and intense aspect ratio, The Lighthouse is brilliant, original and utterly distinctive. Eggers continues to prove himself one of contemporary cinema’s most audacious and innovative filmmakers – finding entirely original ways of terrifying his audiences.
