A modern re-telling of Euripides’ Iphigenia at Aulis, this thriller brims with unsettling humour and creeping dread.
From Oscar-nominated director Yorgos Lanthimos (The Favourite, The Lobster) comes a tale steeped in Greek tragedy, existential horror, Hitchcockian psychodrama and riveting suspense. 'The Killing of a Sacred Deer' subverts expectations at every turn.
The screening is accompanied by a discussion between a panel of renowned classicists who will discuss the importance of mythology to Ancient Greek culture, and its influence on storytelling to the present day.
Professor Paul Cartledge—A.G. Leventis Senior Research Fellow, Clare College, Emeritus A.G. Leventis Professor of Greek Culture, and author of numerous books including 'The Spartans: An Epic History' and 'Alexander the Great: The Hunt for a New Past'.
