Panel Discussion on the European Underground scene

Location

In this panel we join several festival directors and filmmakers to discuss the following topic: how can people discover European "underground" films? Do festivals and creators lack the ability to find each other across languages and borders? Would the European industry benefit from a platform for streaming, crowdfunding and talent-searching specifically for "underground" films? Or would underground cease to be underground when you organize it like that?

Panel members:
Lucio Massa (Hacker Porn Festival, Rome Italy)
Sol Charlotte (Filmmaker, Spain/Panama)
Stefan Schimek (Shivers Film Festival, Konstanz Germany)
Alex Diehl (BUTFF, Breda The Netherlands)
Moderator
Ard Vijn (Rotterdam, The Netherlands)

Children of Golgotha

Children of Golgotha

Golgotha

A convent in Venezuela, 1929: on demand of her parents the young Maria is received as a nun in the order. The strict rules of the convent and the approaches of the other sisters won't be her only problems soon. Because since a fresco is uncovered behind the walls of the chapel, an unholy force seems to find its way into the convent. Even the son of the lord himself comes down from the cross to push the nuns into a swirl of lust and occult rituals.
Brandl is a trademark based in the south of Germany producing and distributing independent B-movies as if exploitation cinema is still at its prime.
In the previous years we screened many a Brandl picture, BUT this year we are finally happy to invite the Holy Family of Brandl over to come to our festival! Praise the Children of Golgotha! Praise the Holy Brandl Trinity!

Jessica van Deursen

Jessica van Deursen is een beeldend kunstenaar en performer, die de grenzen van de beeldende kunst opzoekt. Niet alleen tart zij de grens tussen kunst en haar dagelijks leven, ook test zi haar eigen mentale en fysieke grenzen. Daarbij stelt zij zichzelf de vraag hoe zij controle kan houden over haar levensloop, in hoeverre anderen daar invloed op hebben en welke rol daarin is weggelegd voor de kunst.
Van Deursen ziet haar kunst als de documentatie van haar ontwikkeling als menselijk wezen. In performances confronteert zij haar publiek met rituele of interactieve handelingen waarmee zij ook de beschouwers wil laten reflecteren op hun eigen gedrag, gedachten en gevoelens.

Crazed with lust and desire many of the nuns pleasure themselves and each other in fear of the Mother Superior. One night a wounded man is found on the grounds of the convent and is brought inside to be healed. He becomes the focus of the young nuns' desires as each one tries to visit this young man. But along with him has come the evil force of Satan. A local priest proceeds to exorcise the demon from within the holy building driving the nuns into a delirium of sexual madness.
