Repeater 1979 12

74 mins United Kingdom Director. Chris Monger

Comic thriller influenced by the French New Wave which, with its unorthodox narrative about a woman's confession of murder, deconstructs the conventions of the thriller genre. Directed by Christopher Monger (Voice Over), who would go on to have a successful Hollywood career, Repeater was produced out of the Chapter Film Workshop, a Cardiff based filmmaking workshop funded by the BFI and Channel 4.

This title is also available on the DVD/Blu-ray 'Voice Over' in the BFI Flipside collection.
