We'd like to bring your attention to this Sunday's Monorail Film Club, an incredible one-off film that is a key part of what was a fast developing 1960s world cinema scene in part influenced by the French New Wave, in this case especially Godard. Unavailable for a long time, Switchboard Operator is the story of a tragic romance between a young telephonist and a coprporation rat catcher set in Belgrade. A brilliant looking, compelling film.

Selected and introduced by Al Kingsbury, a contributor to the Monorail Film Club. Al runs a fortnightly dj night called Fantastic Adventures, every first and third Friday at the 78, Kelvinhaugh Street, Glasgow.
