They had me at ‘car crash of cinema and geography’…

But if you do need to know anything more about Passengerfilms, they’re an award winning film society who seek to bring interesting ideas within cultural geography to the cinema-going public.

Their next event (held on Tuesday 19th January at Genesis Cinema) will feature a screening of Nightcrawler, the disturbing thriller in which Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) struggles to find work in the impenetrable labour market of Los Angeles. Bloom’s behaviour becomes increasingly and ruthlessly dark as he prioritises personal ambition and commercial success at the expense of humanitarian principles and integrity.

Precarious Geographies (Ella Harris and Mel Nowicki) will then host a discussion with Dr Oli Mould (Royal Holloway) and Dr Will Davies (Goldsmiths) about the ethical landscape and precarious labour markets of contemporary urban environments.

There’ll also be a Q&A afterwards and plenty of opportunities to posture around louchely with cocktails in the bar.


Tickets for Passengerfilms Presents Nightcrawler (Tuesday 19th January) are available from the Genesis, priced £5.
