Showing: 10 June 2023 until 11 June 2023
The audaciously original debut from writer-director Thomas Hardiman, Medusa Deluxe is a bold, camp and unique take on the murder mystery.
Shining a light on the obsessive world of hairdressing, this extravagant whodunnit features an array of electric performances from its dynamic cast.
After a stylist is found dead at a hairdressing competition, the remaining competitors try to uncover the murderer over the course of an evening. Rivalry and mistrust build as the remaining group of determined contestants continue to construct their elaborate hairstyles, and secrets begin to unravel as they suspect that someone may be trying to rig the competition by gruesomely picking off its entrants.
With stunning cinematography by Academy Award nominee Robbie Ryan (The Favourite, American Honey), as well as dazzling and cutting edge hair designs from renowned stylist Eugene Souleiman, and an electronic score by Koreless, Hardiman’s vivacious and absurdly comic ensemble drama will keep audiences in suspense until the end.
The screening on Sat 10 June will feature a recorded Q&A with director Thomas Hardiman.
