Screening: The Tenant (1976)

Wednesday 25 February 2009

7.00 – 8.30pm

Director Roman Polanski, 1976, Cert. 18

In Polanski's sinister, classic, Parisian tale, a new tenant finds the neighbours have designs on his life.

Trelkovsky, a Polish file clerk in Paris, moves into a new apartment in the city. The previous tenant lies in a coma in a hospital. Trelkovsky starts to suspect his new neighbours who are an assortment of old recluses and busybodies. While visiting the ex-tenant in the hospital, Trelkovski meets his girlfriend Stella.

Specially selected by the curators of the Liz Arnold show to accompany the exhibition.
