Mayhem to journey through Sci-fi with The Created Woman

Mayhem Film Festival, in partnership with Film Hub Central East and the BFI's nationwide Sci-Fi programme 'Days of Fear and Wonder', present 'The Created Woman' - a three-day journey into Sci-Fi with screenings, events and discussions, on 5-7 December at Broadway.

Through Sci-Fi classics and some under-the-radar gems and with a range of contributors including writers and filmmakers, alongside the Mayhem team, this season will offer a chance to review and re-assess the idea of the created woman – a recurring theme within the genre, through creating the “perfect” woman, creation gone wrong, constructing wives and daughters through to conjuring of the woman.

Co-curated by London Film Festival Programme Advisor, Sarah Lutton, and Mayhem Co-Directors, Chris Cooke and Steven Sheil, the season will include screenings of Frankenstein Created Woman, Weird Science, Metropolis, The Stepford Wives, Solaris (1972 and 2002), and Cherry 2000. The Broadway Lounge will be transformed into the Sci-Fi Salon, hosting a series of free screenings including Dr Jekyll and Sister Hyde, The Bride of Frankenstein, Metropolis 2001, Teknolust and Westworld.

All screenings will be introduced; each contributor sharing their passion for Sci-Fi and discussing ideas of the created woman. An informal discussion event 'Robot Women and Created Wives', also held in the Sci-Fi Salon, will complete the season.

Chris Cooke, Mayhem Co-Director and The Created Woman Co-Programmer, says: "As part of an exciting science fiction strand we've put together an amazing programme of cult science fiction cinema. There is something for everyone, from big budget classics like Solaris and Westworld to low budget insanity with Cherry 2000 and the Tilda Swinton-starring Teknolust, from Hammer films to silent masterpieces like Metropolis, but what we want to do with this season is look a little deeper at one of the most enduring themes of the science fiction film, the creation of artificial life and specifically 'The Created Woman'. From the early days of the genre the theme of 'building' women has been key... and these women have been at the centre of the story, from John Hughes' 80s hit Weird Science through to creepy classic The Stepford Wives."

Tickets for all cinema screenings are £5 and currently on sale. Screenings and events in our Sci-Fi Salon (our Lounge) are free. To book tickets and to find out more information, please visit http://www.broadway.org.uk/groups/the_created_woman
