60 mins – Ireland 2019 – Experimental – Dir: Jann Clavadetscher
Starring: Jessica Clavadetscher, Rouzbeh Rashidi, Anthony Belton
Jann Clavadetscher brings his trademark combination of intense visual experimentation and impish humour to Kino Clinic, the second part of his self-described Cine-Medical trilogy. Like its predecessor, Kino Hospital (2017), it is an assault on narrative, genre and the sensorium. In it the evil Dr. Baron Von Mertzbach (Rouzbeh Rashidi) gets a taste of his own medicine while lethal bacteria multiply explosively and form colonies around his castle. Amidst the mayhem, the echoes of scientists play hide and seek with the audience.
+ SHORT FILM
Blood in the Butter (directed by Shelly Kamiel, 21 mins): In Blood in the Butter, Shelly Kamiel invites viewers into an intense personal vision that is as unsettling as it is visually enticing. Melt into a fluid of vibrant luscious lunacy. Memories become power and melt down into a weapon. The source of that power becomes so electrified that it becomes everything.
Both films are world premieres. Jann Clavadetscher will be present for a post screening Q&A.
