Andrew Legge / IE, GB, 2022 / 79 min.

A ‘spectacular low-budget science fiction film’ is how Andrew Legge’s feature film debut was described at the Locarno film festival. Now released in the Netherlands, this black & white rime-travel film is about two sisters who try to influence the outcome of World War II using their home-built time travel machine.

poster Lola (Andrew Legge, IE/GB 2022)
London, 1941. The city suffers during the Blitz – continuous bombing runs by Hitler’s Luftwaffe, Thomasina and Martha are worried: what if the Nazis win? The two talented sisters – their parents are deceased – build a machine that allows them to receive TV and radio broadcasts from the future. They call their time travelling machine ‘Lola’.


Before the screening of Lola, you will see the short film R.I.P. (7') by Jan Doense from 2001. In this humorous thriller from the Eye collection, a zombie visits a terrified woman in a dark house. However, the dark invader, who turns out to be her dead husband, is not after her or her belongings. With De Dijk singer Huub van der Lubbe in the role of the creep.

In Eye and national cinemas.

Screened at prominent national and international festivals, yet never released in Dutch cinemas. Quite unjustly so, Eye Filmmuseum thinks, and so it has once again brought an exceptional selection of films from international festivals to the Netherlands.
