This week is all about horror as we’re joined by film critic Clarisse Loughrey. She joins Anna to share her thoughts on gender and female identity in the contemporary horror genre, particularly through the new Spanish horror film Piggy.
Piggy stars Laura Galán as Sara, an overweight teen in rural small town Spain, whose bullying at the hands of the ‘in crowd’ takes a turn when a stranger arrives. Piggy’s writer and director, filmmaker Carlota Pereda, speaks to Anna about her motivations behind making the film, as an embodiment of her own personal fears and her filmic inspirations.
