Katie Goh Presents

Katie Goh, author of The End: Surviving the World Through Imagined Disasters, curates a season of speculative disaster movies that speak to how we’re living right now – as well as the post-apocalyptic ways we might live in the future if we continue down a social, political and ecological road of disaster.

"Melancholia is a potent beauty of a film, and Kirsten Dunst gives an incomparable performance"Rolling Stone
