We are sorry to announce that Anna Bogutskaya, who was due to introduce our screening of Black Swan on Thursday evening, has had to cancel. She has kindly recorded an introduction for us which will screen before the film.

Black Swan is a psychological thriller set in the New York ballet, that follows Nina, a competitive, dedicated dancer, whose dreams of taking the lead in Swan Lake threaten to overpower her already fragile state of mind. It is impossible to imagine the world of Black Swan without the fever-fuelled influence of The Red Shoes.

Anna Bogutskaya is a freelance critic, author, film programmer and creative producer. She writes for BBC Culture, The Guardian, MUBI, The Face, TimeOut, amongst others, and programmes films for BFI, Edinburgh and Fantastic Fest. She produces and hosts The Final Girls podcast, created and produced the horror anthology podcast Eerie and has produced podcasts for Paramount, Studiocanal, BFI and Vertigo Releasing, as well as contributing to many others. Her first book, Unlikeable Female Characters: The Women Pop Culture Wants You to Hate, was published in the UK and US in May 2023. Her next book, Feeding the Monster, will be published by Faber in 2024.
