Rhiwbina film will be Halloween curtain-raiser

The made-in-Rhiwbina short film Annalium 8: Sssss is in line for another big-screen showing – as the curtain raiser for horror classic, The Exorcist (1973).

It will be screened at Newbridge Memo for the Halloween Horror Cinema Club on Sunday 29 October, ahead of The Exorcist, regularly ranked as the best horror film of all time.

Directed by Andrew Griffin from a script by Rhiwbina-born-and-raised Robert Lancey, Annalium 8: Sssss is a dark scifi short, produced by Weltch Media and Annalium Films.

In a world where all animal life has been wiped out, a scientist in full bio-hazard kit and with a life-support machine in tow, discovers a young girl, apparently fit and well…

The film stars Francesca Louise White and Minaii Baelfire. Francesca is an award-winning actress, and Minaii holds the distinction of being the world’s first Black Young Elsa in a stage production of Frozen.

It was premiered as part of the MovieMaker showcase of short films at Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff, in September, and the cast and crew reunited for a private screening with supporters later that month. Earlier in October, it was shown at Rhiwbina's own community cinema, Monico Movies.
