Baise-moi

baise

Manu and Nadine lose their last tenuous relationship with mainstream society when Manu gets raped and Nadine sees her only friend being shot. After a chance encounter, they embark on an explosive journey of sex and murder. Perhaps as a revenge against men, perhaps as a revolt against bourgeois society, but certainly in a negation - almost joyful in its senseless violence - of all the codes of a society that has excluded, raped and humiliated them. Controversial for its violence and real sex scenes: a vividly nihilist road movie set in France. Starring real-life sex workers BAISE MOI shocked French arthouse audiences back in 2000 with its relentless display of sexual and graphic violence. Fuck me? Fuck you!

I spit on your Grave

i spit filmposter

Novelist Jennifer Hills travels from New York City to Louisiana to work on her next book in privacy. The gas station attendant, Johnny Stillman, gives her directions to her rented cabin when she gets lost. He embarrasses himself trying to flirt with her. When the cabin's plumbing becomes clogged, it is fixed by Matthew Duncan, a stuttering plumber with an intellectual disability. She rewards him with an abrupt kiss of gratitude. Matthew tells Johnny and his friends Andy Chirensky and Stanley Woods about his visit. Johnny, whose ego was bruised after the gas station incident, decides that Jennifer is snobbish and needs to be "taught a lesson". That night, the four men sneak into the cabin and taunt and assault her, although Matthew refuses to participate. She escapes into the woods and bumps into Sheriff Storch and Earl, the owner of the cabin. Storch takes Jennifer back to the cabin, but when he finds her drugs and alcohol, he casts doubts on her story. Johnny, Matthew, Andy, and Stanley return; all five men gang-rape her, including an initially reluctant Matthew. Stanley records everything with his video camera. Afterward, just as Storch is about to shoot her, Jennifer falls into the river to escape. A remake that surpasses the original, and is one of the toughest watches. Written by and executively produced by the original director, Meir Zarchi.

Crimes of the Future [Dutch subs]

crimes of the future

Humans adapt to a synthetic environment, with new transformations and mutations. With his partner Caprice, Saul Tenser, celebrity performance artist, publicly showcases the metamorphosis of his organs in avant-garde performances. The new Cronenberg is a must for our festival, we screened many of his older body-horror as well as the film that the new one is inspired on by name. The reactions and reviews have been rather mixed - as with all of his films. A walk out in Cannes might be full house at BUTFF.

Rick Kewal Gademann

Zijn naam is Rick Kewal Gademann. Hij is zanger, dichter en een visuele vogel. Hij klimt geregeld de pen in, want bij de woorden voelt hij zich comfortabel en thuis. Je kunt uiteraard poëzie, maar ook liedjes, korte verhalen en langere verhalen verwachten. Binnen zijn fotografie reist hij het liefst mee met de gevoelige beelden. Beelden die hem vooral inspireren en op een eigenaardige wijze raken. Hij zoekt naar poëzie, maar vaak vindt de poëzie hem nog voordat hij hier  erg in heeft. "Poëzie en ik zijn inmiddels kompanen" aldus Kewal.

Dawn Breaks Behind the Eyes

Dawn breaks behind the Eyes

Dawn Breaks Behind the Eyes tells the story of a disruptive couple in a '60s gothic setting. Margot (Luisa Taraz) has inherited a castle, which is visited by her husband Dieter (played superbly by Frederik von Lüttichau). The first half skillfully delivers a psychodrama of this toxic relationship, amid the surreal castle where space and time seem to have their own rules. This summary does not even describe a small fraction of the sensation this film brings about: visual ecstasy, confusion and disorientation, but also a captivating experience you will not be able to recapitulate. A nightmarish fever dream shot on 35 mm by someone that has watched many giallos and euro-horrors.
