Despite being beautiful pieces of art in their own right, the low-budget, exploitation cinema of Mexico in the 1960s and 70s is rarely ever seen, let alone given an afternoon public screening. Often complex and always intriguing, the films are being shown in all their glory every weekday afternoon over the course of the festival. Whether it’s scantily clad women on a mission of the plight of luchadors and wrestlers, there’s bound to be something flashy and spectacular on offer from the forgotten tapes.

Accompanying the screenings will be a tastebud tantalising Latin-inspired menu from chef Tom Adlam served alongside a range of refreshing Mexican beers. There will also be vintage playlists from Funky Butt Club DJ Lady Koo. There’s no better meeting point during this year’s ¡VAMOS! Festival.

A History of Mexploitation comes to the Tyneside Bar Cafe, Newcastle from Monday 8th June.
