Here is The Book Club introduction to the event: The Book Club are excited to announce two exclusive free screenings of Larry Clark’s (director of Kids and Bully) new film, Marfa Girl. The film isn’t showing in any conventional cinemas and makes this screening at The Book Club especially special!

Set in the Texan town of Marfa, the film celebrates teenage sexuality and confusion in a similar vein to Clark’s earlier films. Focusing on 15-year-old Adam, the film explor
es the tension between the artistic community of the town, the Mexican border patrols and the Hispanic community and what happens when a sexually promiscuous young artist arrives in town.

The film has gathered numerous accolades, including ‘Best Film’ at the Rome Film festival. Get yourselves down to TBC to watch the new offering from one of the most important directors in independent cinema today, whilst swigging a couple of ciders.

To attend please send your name to with the subject MARFA GIRL SCREENING along with the names of anyone you want to bring along (maximum 4). It's totally free but the space is limited so we need to run a list!

Here is an excerpt.
