Wicker Man 6Fantastiq is delighted to welcome filmmaker and patron Robin Hardy to a special event showcasing one of the most talked about British films ever made. Written by Anthony (Sleuth) Shaffer and directed by Robin Hardy, The Wicker Man endured an abortive release and years in the wilderness before it was rereleased in the late ‘70s, rapidly acquiring a cult reputation. The tale of a clash of faiths on a tiny island off the Scottish coast it sets a puritanical policeman against an elegantly menacing pagan laird (Christopher Lee giving the performance of his career) as he investigates a missing child. Part musical, part travelogue, part horror, part passion play The Wicker Man has been restored to something like its original cut and is presented in the presence of its director who will take part in a post-screening Q&A.
