A Day of Experimental Film at Triskel Christchurch


"On a Sunday afternoon this August 12th, adventurous souls seeking haven from the harsh summer light will find sanctuary in Triskel's Christchurch Cinema as three programmes of hauntingly dreamlike avant-garde visions fall through the church’s muffled darkness to take possession of all present.



American underground legend James Fotopoulos’ feature The Nest (2003) will be screened, along with 5 short films from Holland’s preeminent experimental filmmaker Frans Zwartjes.

And three of Ireland’s most uncompromising contemporary experimental filmmakers, Rouzbeh Rashidi, Dean Kavanagh and Black Sun film programmer Maximilian Le Cain, will be on hand to present a series of their more disturbing short films. Strange atmospheres, tense self-portraits, troubled meditations on the ghostly power of cinema itself… Filmmaking at its most eerie and obliquely personal."
