It took some decades before George Cukor’s gothic suspenser Gaslight, based on Patrick Hamilton’s 1938 play, became something other than a sturdy example of Oscar-certified studio movie-making. Among the hottest and most contentious of mental health talking points, ‘gaslight’ is today used by countless more people who haven’t seen the movie than have.
But see it they should, because this story of a conniving Euro-smoothie who marries the vulnerable (and Oscar-winning) Ingrid Bergman in order to convince her she’s going crazy is not only a superb example of sumptuously staged, golden era studio filmmaking, the phenomenon it describes is now universally recognized as a means of insidiously asserting psychological control over a weaker will.
Come see where it all started, and stick around for a lively discussion of why ‘gas lighting’ is such an unshakeable twenty-first century fixation. No, you’re not crazy. You just haven’t seen Gaslight yet.

Followed by discussion between journalist Carly Lewis and Rendezvous with Madness Film Festival programmer Geoff Pevere.
