Suspiria: Italian Film Festival
Calendar, Festivals, Film, October 18

Film: Closing Night Special Restoration Screening of Suspiria 1977 / 2018 Lavazza Italian Film Festival Perth

17 October @ Cinema Paradiso ·
Presented by Palace Cinemas ·

Join us for a glass of Calneggia Asolo Prosecco D.O.C.G and a Connoisseur Gourmet Ice Cream followed by Dario Argento’s digitally remastered cult film Suspiria.

6.15pm arrivals
6.30pm film start

Suspiria Synopsis:
In 1977 Suspiria terrified audiences worldwide. Now, just over forty years later, Dario Argento’s neon-soaked nightmare returns to the big screen in dazzling 4K, showcasing the film’s vibrant Technicolour palette in all its deep red (and green, blue and gold) glory.

Ballet student Suzy Bannion (Jessica Harper) arrives at a prestigious dance academy in Freiburg, a school plagued by gruesome and supernatural happenings. Soon students begin to die in horrific circumstances – is Suzy next, and can she uncover the academy’s sinister secret before it’s too late?

Italian horror (‘giallo’) auteur Dario Argento’s visionary symphony of terror, Suspiria (co-written by his then-girlfriend Daria Nicolodi) abandoned the traditional conventions of giallo in favour of a witchy brew of magic and mystery. A ground-breaking masterpiece beloved for its bravura use of colour and hallucinogenic storytelling, Argento’s masterpiece is the most famous Italian horror film of all time. This year, before you see Academy Award-nominated director Luca Guadagnino’s (Call Me By Your Name, A Bigger Splash) hotly anticipated remake, give yourself over on Closing Night, to the incomparable beauty and horror of Dario Argento’s Suspiria.

Mark the end of the 21st Spanish Film Festival and celebrate the remarkable cinematic achievements of Academy Award winner Guillermo del Toro.

Join us at Cinema Paradiso from 6.45pm on Wednesday, 16 May for a glass of Torres wine on arrival before the 7pm screening of his classic PAN’S LABYRINTH.

The visionary Mexican director recently took home four Academy Awards including Best Film and Best Director with a further nine nominations for his whimsical and spellbinding underwater romance The Shape of Water. To celebrate this incredible achievement, we’re bringing his beloved dark fairy-tale (and fantasy classic) Pan’s Labyrinth back to the big screen to close our 21st festival.

In 1944 Spain, following a bloody Civil War, young Ofelia travels to the north with her pregnant mother to live at the command post of her new stepfather, Captain Vidal, a sadistic man hell-bent on ridding the countryside of rebel forces. When Ofelia discovers a magical labyrinth under the ground, she flees into it, seeking refuge from the terrors of the conflict. But the subterranean world turns out to harbour its own kind of threats. Here she encounters all manner of creatures, benevolent and otherwise, including a grotesque faun who gives her three dangerous tasks to complete. And so Ofelia undertakes a quest to claim her crown as princess of this realm. (Spanish with English subtitles).
