At first the muggers seem to get the upper hand, but then he's helped by Tommy, a young robber who takes his side. The Italian title sounds like vigilante poetry: IL CITTADINO SE RIBBELLA. From Enzo G. Castellari, who was so kind to pay us a visit as the main guest of the 2017 edition.

Enrico, an ultra-rightist young man lying on his identity, finds refuge in the center. The only safe place for him is this refugee camp that he did not want, while the dead are walking outside…
Nominated for the BUT award, and director present.
This avant-garde sex film is a tribute to the films of Alberto Cavallone, directed by Morgana Mayer, whose Sexual Labyrinth was shown at BUT last year. Just like that film, Female Touch is a blasphemous, dreamlike movie that offers a queer and kinky vision of womanhood.

Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust) is back with this nasty morality tale about three backpackers trying to solve the murder of their roommate, while also trying to get rid of the body. Expert genre-thrills from the master of the gory horror movie.
We at BUT like it kinky, and there is nothing more kinky on our program than Sexual Labyrinth, a dark, surrealistic exploration of beautifully perverse sexuality. Pleasure and pain are interchangable in this ode to the poetic sex ﬁlms of seventies auteurs like Joe D’Amato and Jess Franco.
