Tragedy of Cinema

"Even if we fail at relationships, friendships, careers, basic tasks or just ‘being’ in general, we can still watch films and embrace Cinema. This is a place were a fictional gravity holds a strong force upon us and it questions whether the life we lead is worth living. For me, this is the most tragic fact in life. Nevertheless it’s always great to see you at the pictures, even if you are just a silhouette in the crowd. "

EFS @ Filmbase April 24th 2016

EFS @ FilmBase presents
Indecent Materials

Over the past decade Experimental Film Society have been creating a landscape of deeply personal and radically experimental cinema in Ireland. The presence of eroticism is apparent across a spectrum of EFS output and the fetishism of Cinema as an apparatus is a common proclivity.

An invitation was issued to members and associated artists of EFS to create new work responding to the heading “Indecent Materials”. The resulting programme is a configuration of that material. Taking the form of six shorts and one medium length film, this material gives full attention to each filmmaker’s approach in detailing, what could be called, erotic or perverse themes. “Indecent Materials” is a combination of new and previously unscreened work that will rot the eyes, ears, teeth and loins in a display that is perhaps otherwise un-programmable. 

“Everyone knows what damage is done to the soul by bad motion pictures. They are occasions of sin; they seduce young people along the ways of evil by glorifying the passions; they show life under a false light; they cloud ideals; they destroy pure love, respect for marriage, affection for the family … [the] destruction and ruin of souls”
- His Holiness Pope Pius XI, “Use and Misuse of Films”, published by the Catholic Truth Society, July 1936.

A hole in your soul.
