Exclusive Screening: Fair Game (1986)
Saturday 26th May 10.30pm (The Italian Cultural Institute)
Rape, revenge and ‘roos! One of the most contentious of all cult adaptations remains the ‘female vengeance cycle’, which flourished in the wake of 1970s controversies such as Last House on the Leftand I Spit on Your Grave. The cult rarity Fair Game is Australia’s infamous entry to the cycle, and features Cassandra Delaney as the owner of a remote animal sanctuary, who is stalked and brutalised by a trio of kangaroo hunters who come to see her business and body as ‘fair game.’ Featuring a strong central performance from Delaney, as well as as an effective realisation of outback iconography (courtesy of director Mario Andreacchio), it is easy to see why Quentin Tarantino has confirmed Fair Gameas one of his favourite ‘Ozploitation’ titles, even re-working its central scenes of female torture into his Death Proof entry for Grindhouse. Having rarely been seen before in the UK, Cine-Excess VI is proud to present this exclusive screening of Fair Game as our final screening of the 2012 event, with a print which has been personally authorised by the film’s original producer Harley Manners.
We are delighted that cult Canadian actor and producer Deke Richards (Deaden, The Red Hours) will be introducing the exclusive screening of Fair Game on Saturday 26th May at 10.30pm.
