Christina Quarles selects a double screening of two films that have influenced her own practice as an artist.  

Under the Skin (2013) is a film about seeing our world through non-human eyes. Filmed on location in Scotland, Jonathan Glazer’s elliptical sci-fi film follows an alien creature (Scarlett Johansson) who stalks human prey. 

Betty Boop: Snow White (1933) is a short film from Max Fleischer’s Fleischer Studios. It features the titular character in the role of snow white, which was released by Disney as an animation in 1937.
