“Obedience is the only path to happiness” in a mysterious school for girls where each arrival is marked with a coffin. Dainty in white dress and black shoes, pigtails, and colored ribbons to denote their age, they train in preparation for a mysterious fate. Taken from the same source material as Dario Argento’s SUSPIRIA, Frank Wedekind’s Mine-Haha, a novella described by Marianne Faithful as ‘a fairy tale that morphs into something far more grotesque’. Dubbed “at once a feminist parable and a bedtime story” and “genuinely eerie”, INNOCENCE is a masterwork of creeping terror, ripe for rediscovery. Starring Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard. Rare 35mm Screening.
