Deadly Prey Gallery with The Devil’s Sword
Showtimes and tickets
Videodrome is proud to team up with the Plaza Theatre to bring this one of a kind art show and film screening event to the city of Atlanta. Deadly Prey Gallery is a Chicago-based art gallery dedicated to hand-painted movie posters from Ghana. Guaranteed to melt your mind, these posters are fascinating examples of imagination and ingenuity. Most of them were made by artists who had never seen the movies and were working from just a plot summary or, at best, the VHS sleeve. The show will feature a selection of posters from Deadly Prey Gallery’s extensive collection and feature artists such as Heavy J, Farkira, Leonardo, Mr. Nana AGYQ, and Stoger. All posters will be available for purchase. Deadly Prey Gallery Founder Brian Chankin will be on hand for a Q&A before the film to discuss the gallery’s background and mission. He has brought one of his favorite films to screen, The Devil’s Sword, an absolutely bonkers Indonesian martial arts/fantasy adventure featuring crocodile men, witches, warlocks, and 80s action star Barry Prima. This film defies categorization and embodies the spirit of Chankin’s gallery. Come for the exhibit (free) and stay for the Q&A and film ($15).
