Directed by Eric Radomski
Starring Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill, Dana Delany, Hart Bochner, Abe Vigoda

Celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm endures as the Dark Knight’s greatest screen outing to date. Equal parts comic book movie, film noir, and character study, this feature animation explores the dichotomy of man in the form of Bruce Wayne trying to give up Batman. Through a lens of superheroism, we observe a striking visualisation of masculinity shattered, the primal directive to vengeance destabilised by the prospect of closure, of self-forgiveness. It’s a visual marvel, and the definitive rebuttal to any arguments that comic book cinema in any way represents a lesser or lower art.

This screening includes a post-screening pre-recorded Q&A with Film & TV Critic Amon Warmann (Empire Magazine, Fade To Black Podcast).
