As part of a new BFI NETWORK Film Hub London series pairing up-and-coming talent with their biggest professional inspirations, we're thrilled to launch Under the Influence with this incredible duo—producers Joy Gharoro-Akpojotor and Christine Vachon. Christine is one of the most creative and in-demand producers working today, and her company Killer Films is responsible producing the likes of Boys Don't Cry (1996), Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001) and Todd Haynes films such as Safe (1996), Far From Heaven (2002) and Carol (2015). Hot off the heels of her award-winning BFI NETWORK-funded short Hair Cut (2018), Joy's first theatrically released feature Blue Story (2019) came out to high acclaim late last year. Join us on July 15th, when Joy will helm this chat around creative producing, collaboration, and tracing the trajectory of queer cinemas throughout Killer Films' oeuvre from the 90s to today.
