Death-Hi Movie Nights: Martyrs
Fri, Oct 14, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Bushel is pleased to turn over its space to This & That (Bushel’s wonderful next-door neighbor) on Friday nights during the month of October for their Death-Hi movie series. On October 14th: Martyrs (France, 2008), directed by Pascal Laugier, and featuring Morjana Alaoui and Mylène Jampanoï. Pre-screening lounge in the This & That garden begins at 6:15 pm. Screening starts at 7 pm at Bushel. Free to attend; seating limited to 30; mask optional. Not for the faint of heart!

Few films push the boundaries of their audience as far as Martyrs, but seldom do they manage to grip viewers so mercilessly either. The famously brutal film follows the interminable bond of two deeply traumatized girls, Lucie and Anna, as they attempt to take revenge against Lucie’s former captors in the most horrific ways imaginable. Martyrs will leave anyone brave enough to watch it as haunted as its protagonists.


Movies in the Death-Hi series were chosen with captivity in mind. Each film offers an uncomfortable perspective into people being held against their will. Whether it be a toxic relationship, a bad business deal, or Netflix binging during quarantine, we can all relate to a sense of being held captive.
