Programme 3

The Nest (James Fotopoulos, 2003)

American underground legend James Fotopoulos’ feature The Nest (2003) “makes it seem as though he is some extraterrestrial visitor photographing humans for the first time” (Variety) and is ideal, mind-warping viewing for David Lynch fans who think they’ve seen everything. The five-film mini-retrospective of Frans Zwartjes’ claustrophobically stylised short films fully justifies the reputation of this poet of voyeurism and sexual tension as perhaps Holland’s preeminent experimental filmmaker. And three of Ireland’s most uncompromising alternative filmmakers, Rouzbeh Rashidi, Dean Kavanagh and Maximilian Le Cain, will be on hand to present a series of their more disturbing shorts.
