Stand By for Failure

Stand By for Failure

standby for failure negativland

In this new documentary about Negativland, the footage is almost entirely made by the people who are in it. Plunderphonics is the name given to the genre by the band that named itself after the song by CAN. Media attention rose after the band made an unauthorized cover of a U2 song. Over The Edge live radio broadcasts, and news footage, and occasional interviews from the era. The format follows the footage: a continuous loop of time backward and forward, sometimes repeating.

BERDEN

Berendine Venemans

 

Berendine Venemans (1991) used to be a professional game designer, now performance artist, poet and videographer. As an artist she deals with the unnameable and uncontrollable in life.In doing so, she explores the role of intuition
 and believes in the power of uniting intuition and embodiment with the mind, the cognition. The path she takes in this process and the experiences she gains she shares in her
work. Sometimes absurdist, but always subconsciously palpable. Her work invites to be experienced be experienced from the feeling, with the desire to speak from her underbelly to that of the other and thus to make the unnameable experienceable.

The Sound Of Summer + VF For What The Doorbell Tolls

The Sound Of Summer

sound of summer guy

 

In the relentless heat of the gruelling summer, temperatures soar to blistering levels as cicadas emerge to sing their ear-shattering song. Months of continued exposure is enough to make anyone start to feel a little off.
Anyone, that is, except that oddity the locals call ‘the Cicada Man’.
Who is that strange man and why is he always walking around with boxes full of live cicadas? More important, what does he do with them?
As the heat starts to get to our heroine, and her sanity depletes, real life and delusion begin to mix. Her darkest nightmares seep into our world and she fears the Cicada Man has planted his swarm of insects inside her. She must get them out – at all costs.
Thus begins her downward spiral into extreme paranoia and self-mutilation. She just needs to make it through the summer.

'ROCKO LIVE (2)'

GETROUWDGETROUWD

Gay Duo Versalis is a short performance by the performance duo GETROUWD (Rosa Vermeijden and Geert Sweep). In these 15 minutes of performing arts they interpret musically, theatrically and performatively the story of a couple who, quite literally, have been attached to stuck together. They take you into the bickering, into bitchy yet dirty in which they ultimately get a lot done together after all.

My work can easily be described as a messy, uncoordinated shitshow, but I think its also very human in that way. It really wants to stop global space travel, yet it also just wants to be loved for what it is.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RAMONRamon de Gier

Visual artist and uses humor as a tactical tool to disrupt and disarm. With a great fondness for the poetic and absurd gestures of Wim T. Schippers or Bas Jan Ader, he makes performances, installations, props and digital collages. He lovingly pastes, cares for and copies the dysfunctional and discarded into composite sculptures of lived-in objects. For the student and young performer programs, he crawls into the role of Rocko, a highly flammable stone who cares about the fate of us humans. From the depths of the volcano, he prepared for ROCKO live, where nothing or no one would stand in his way....

Voor het eerst waagt Voor Niemand Wat Wils zich buiten de inmiddels gebaande paden van het Leiden International Film Festival!

Crapmeisters Nils en Hans zijn (uiteraard met mondkapjes en handschoenen) in hun rariteitenschatkist gedoken om de meest knullige, onsmakelijke, verbluffende, aanstootgevende en ja, hilarische cinematische curiositeiten op te diepen.

LET OP: dit is hetzelfde programma dat vorig jaar op het LIFF te zien is geweest. Geen reden om niet (nog een keer) te komen natuurlijk, maar een gewaarschuwd mens telt voor twee! En wees gerust, het is er niet beter op geworden...

Black Friday Metal Night

blackTERZIJ DE HORDE

have always tried to not limit themselves by genres per se. Over the years, there have always been elements of black metal, progressive doom, chaotic screamo and extreme hardcore, but they have never felt as clear, singular elements. Rather, they are combined in a visceral, raw, honest emotional torrent; a combination which mimics the live shows as well.

After the release of ‘Self’ in 2015, it is now time for ‘In One of These, I am your Enemy’. The band’s sound used to be described as a mixture of bands such as Wolves in the Throne Room, Kickback, Khanate and Neil Perry. Seemingly similar in approach to bands as Bosse de Nage, Laster and Woe, the last five years have however seen the band being named more and more as a unique stalwart of Dutch black metal, with a sound and a live show that are incomparable. The band has received widespread international attention and many highly positive reviews both of their recorded music and of their explosive live performances

is the vessel of the lost. A means of staring into the empty sockets of suffering. Enduring the lack of meaning and ground. Enduring defeat and loss. Riffs are very basic yet eloquent and add plots and nuances to the great narratives the drums and bass dictate.

The Editor

the editor 2014

Rey Ciso was once the greatest editor. Since a horrific accident left him with four wooden fingers on his right hand, he's had to resort to cutting pulp films and trash pictures. When the lead actors from the film he's been editing turn up murdered at the studio, Rey is fingered as the number one suspect. The bodies continue to pile up in this absurdist giallo-thriller.

Great film-about-film that seems tailor-made for our festival and will be presented in the presence of our special guest: actor par excellence Laurence R. Harvey!
