Join us for a screening of Matteo Garrone’s strange, dark and visually ambitious Tale of Tales, with ads/trailers replaced by a special storytelling session with Alice Fernbank. Garrone’s first English-language film is a lavish, fantastical adaptation of a collection of very influential fairy tales from 17th Century Neapolitan poet Giambattista Basile, which featured very early versions of famous fables like Rapunzel and Cinderella.
Alice Fernbank is an international storyteller, artist and actress. She tells folktales, myths and legends from all around the world to all kinds of audiences. She came to live in Edinburgh in July 2015 and she is exploring the rich and welcoming storytelling community here in Scotland. She recently performed a full length show ‘Bold Daughters’ at the Scottish Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh.
