Digital If you thought Lost in La Mancha and American Movie chronicled chaotic film productions, get a load of Joel DeMott’s eye-opening making-of documentary about 1977 horror flick The Demon Lover. Both funny and shocking – with a hilariously acerbic voiceover from DeMott herself – the rarely-screened Demon Lover Diary is one of the best films about filmmaking that you’ve never seen.

WOMAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA Celebrating women’s contribution to film DOC TALK This month we highlight two criminally underseen films: American documentarian Joel DeMott’s Demon Lover Diary, which brings humour to a hellish film set; and a special anniversary screening of the inimitable Agnès Varda’s One Sings, The Other Doesn’t, set against the backdrop of the 1970s Women’s Liberation Movement, and still painfully relevant now.
