PPL Film Fest - A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night

Watch Ana Lily Amirpor's A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night and deconstruct the role of psychoanalysis and the return of the undead.

PPL Film Fest runs for 6 days and is formed by a series of film screenings followed by short discussions led by a member of staff or external speaker. On this day, Westley Barnes from the School of Art, Media and American Studies will be leading a discussion and film-screening focused around Ana Lily Amirpor's A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (2014). 

We will b e questioning what can be explained about puppets by Psychoanalysts, and what does it say about us? Is capitalism the Heroin that the West pushes onto the Middle East? What Gender are the dead?

All UEA students are invited to explore different ideas through cinema outside of the university’s academic environment.

Doors will open at 17:00, the event will start at 17:10.
There will be a 15 minute break between the film and the discussion.

Refreshments will be provided.



We're committed to making sure all Do Something Different events are as accessible as possible for all students.

This event has no special accessibility requirements.

Any attendees with individual concerns about their accessibility are advised to contact Union Opportunities (Union.Opportunities@uea.ac.uk) for additional support. 


What is Do Something Different?

The Do Something Different Programme is about trying a new activity and sparking your interests! We aim to encourage greater student interaction from across schools, liberations and courses that build your knowledge and skills as individuals. Perhaps you've been looking to try a new sport, attending a live music performance, or dabbling in an academic subject that piques your interest? We collate a wide variety of different activities happening across campus - from sports and games, to trips and extracurricular lectures! 

There's always something happening every single day, and most events are absolutely free or cost very little! The best events will return during the Do Something Different Festival in Semester Two - a week-long celebration in which teaching is suspended for you to try a huge range of activities! Stay tuned for the full Festival programme coming soon!
