by Juraj Herz
New Flesh Cinema present a late night screening of a film of twisted humours, a mix of Dr Strangelove and Repulsion, taking place in Prague in the time preceding the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia.
Juraj Herz's film The Cremator (1968) can be described in many ways - as a surrealist horror, an expressionist fantasy, and as a black comedy.
Karl Kopfrkingl (Rudolf Hrušínský) is a professional cremator for whom the political climate has allowed free rein to his increasingly deranged impulses.
Scalarama is a worldwide cinema season taking place in September dedicated to the legacy of the Scala cinema.
Before the screening will be the Scalarama launch party at the Royal Dick Bar in Summerhall which takes place (19:00-22:00) so come along before to meet some fellow Edinburgh film enthusiasts.
