In partnership with Preloved of Brighton, CINECITY are delighted to present a window display of original film costumes from two acclaimed British independent features – In Fabric (Dir: Peter Strickland 2018) and Free Fire (Dir: Ben Wheatley 2016), both of which premiered at previous editions of CINECITY.
The first display features the cursed red dress worn by the brilliant Marianne Jean-Baptiste (Secrets and Lies) in Peter Strickland’s In Fabric, a macabre, erotic and funny phantasmagoria which follows the misfortunes of customers who come into contact with the dress at an eerie department store.
For those that haven’t seen the film or would like to see it again, In Fabric is currently available on Google Play.
In Ben Wheatley’s 2016 action-comedy, a meeting between rival gangs in a Boston warehouse in 1978 turns into a deadly shootout. Shot on location in a former Argus printworks in Hollingbury and steeped in 1970s Americana, the costumes on display were designed by Emma Fryer and worn by Justine (Brie Larson), Ord (Armie Hammer) and Stevo (Sam Riley).
Free Fire is currently available on BFI Player.
