Oscar-winning director Quentin Tarantino will be at FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) on Tuesday 11 September for an exclusive preview screening of his latest feature Death Proof at Picturehouse at FACT. He will follow the film with a Q&A for the audience.
Best known for 1994's Pulp Fiction which won an Oscar for Best Screenplay, and nominations for Best Director and Best Picture, the iconic Tarantino has directed a catalogue of classic movies over the last decade, including Reservoir Dogs (1992), Jackie Brown (1997), and Kill Bill Vol 1 & 2 (2003/4). Death Proof will be on general release in the UK on 21 September 2007. The director's event at FACT is a major coup for Liverpool.
Kurt Russell plays stunt man Mike, who uses his super-charged muscle car as a weapon of death, only to find the tables turned on him by a group of tough, sexy, smart women. With all the loving film references you can handle, a typically bravura script with super-cool dialogue, and car action to the extreme, Death Proof does not disappoint and is a worthy addition to Tarantino's classics.
Mike Stubbs, Director and CEO of FACT says, "This event is a huge coup for Liverpool, in that Quentin Tarantino specifically asked to come here. FACT is a multi-art venue with a strong programme and the power to attract international artistic stars like Pipilotti Rist in 2008, and now a Hollywood megastar and cult icon like Quentin Tarantino."
