Black Sun are teaming up with the Triskel Arts Centre to programme the works of major and lesser-known underground experimental filmmakers on Sunday August 12th at 2pm.
This is Black Sun’s first all-film event, a whole afternoon of dreamlike and hauntingly unsettling avant-garde visions. American underground legend James Fotopoulos’ feature The Nest (2003) “makes it seem as though he is some extraterrestrial visitor photographing humans for the first time” (Variety) and is ideal, mind-warping viewing for David Lynch fans who think they’ve seen everything.
The five-film mini-retrospective of Frans Zwartjes’ claustrophobically stylised shorts fully justifies the reputation of this poet of voyeurism and sexual tension as perhaps Holland’s preeminent experimental filmmaker. And three of Ireland’s most uncompromising alternative filmmakers, Rouzbeh Rashidi, Dean Kavanagh and Maximilian Le Cain, will be on hand to present a series of their more disturbing shorts.
