ICE Public Event: 6th October 2018


‘Female Human Animal’

Director Josh Appignanesi

Female Human Animal title screenShot in the real-life contemporary art world in Liverpool and London, FEMALE HUMAN ANIMAL is a darkly romantic psychothriller about a creative woman disenchanted with what modern life has to offer her.

When writer Chloe Aridjis curates the Tate Liverpool retrospective of the surrealist Leonora Carrington, an elusive, brooding man appears, seeming to offer more. But as she descends into a world of obsession, is she hunter or hunted?

Stuffed with cameos from cultural figures, and with a title track by O.M.D., screening on the day of the iconic band’s 40th anniversary gig with the Liverpool Philharmonic, Female Human Animal also pays homage to its guiding feminist spirit, the striking Lancastrian artist and writer Leonora Carrington.
