GUEST PROGRAM

fantomas.png

The tension between film and written word is the playing field of Fantômas and film criticism. In this selection we welcome three filmmakers who enter this constantly exploring territory with their own pen and camera. Each in their own way they grasp the (im)possible meeting of word and image through a special encounter with another. They write and film the other, the always different.

The film critical magazine Fantômas found inspiration for its name from an enigma from film history. In the early years of the last century, French filmmaker Louis Feuillade brought the mysterious antihero Fantômas from the printed word to the cinema screen. There an encounter takes place with film as a popular mass medium and artistic expression, in stories and forms that continue to inspire audiences, critics and artists. That encounter continues to this day, with a multitude of new forms and stories. We embrace that diversity.

FRAME ME

EVI CATS

19' (2021)

After Tobi Lakmaker writes about Evi Cats in his book 'The history of my sexuality', Evi decides to change her view. 'Frame me in' is the result: an intimate investigation into the dynamics of portraiture. A film about the powerlessness that arises the moment we surrender ourselves to the other, in both stories and in love.

A DIARY OF SEXUAL SOLITUDE

NINA ALEXANDRAKI

I collect sexual encounters with men with desire. But there is a gap between my desires and the reality of these nights. So I write and film.
