Farsi-language vampire western (yes, you read that right) to screen at Maxwell Theatre

The Cinema Series at GRU returns this Thursday, March 5, with a matinee and evening screening of the first vampire western ever made in the Farsi language.

Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut basks in the sheer pleasure of pulp. A joyful mash-up of genre, archetype, and iconography, its prolific influences span Spaghetti Westerns, graphic novels, horror films, and the Iranian New Wave.

“A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night” screens at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Maxwell Theatre.

Free admission to The Cinema Series for GRU students, faculty, staff, and the general public is made possible by the Office of Student Life and Engagement and by the generous support of The Bee’s Knees, Sky City, and Westobou Festival.
