Films of Cocozza: Strange & Surreal

In true Scalarama style Enrico Cocozza was a filmmaker and cinema lover. Cocozza established the Connoisseur Film Circle – running his own cinema out of the rear of the family Italian café in Wishaw for fellow film enthusiasts in the 1950’s. Cocozza donated his eclectic and award winning artistic work to the Moving Image Archive in 1984. Creating over 80 films across a multitude of genres – surrealist fantasies, horror, documentary and science fiction – this screening will showcase some of his strange and surreal Scottish films.
