Les Saignantes @ The Morbid Anatomy Museum

To celebrate the latest issue of The New Inquiry Magazine, “Mourning,” we have teamed up with The Future Weird and the Morbid Anatomy Museum to bring you a free screening of Les Saignantes, with a discussion with Derica Shields & Megan Eardley of Future Weird to follow. Attendees will also get free entry to The Morbid Anatomy Museum before the screening. The museum will open its doors at 7 pm, and the screening will begin at 8 pm.

Jean-Pierre Bekolo’s sci-fi thriller Les Saignantes opens with a woman who whispers “We are in 2025 and nothing has changed.” Then she fucks a man to death.
In this future-Cameroon, “death is the party” – morgues, butchers and maggots abound, and nightlife is dominated by the exclusive wakes of Very Important People. When two young women, Majolie and Chouchou, kill a senior politician, they make a plan to wrest power for themselves in a state that would otherwise abandon them to premature death.
