purgatory / noun / an intermediate place or state of temporary suffering for expiatory purification
Within the word “purgatory”, it is easy to envision condemned souls, torment and darkness. However, purgatory may also reflect the cyclic state in which we often rediscover or recreate ourselves anew from within our personal inflictions. Sometimes it is the necessary stage to exorcise ourselves from the haunting ghosts of the past. Perhaps it is the serene place of self reflection and realization.
From within this, the DAMNED Exhibition of Enlightened Darkness proudly presents an exhibition of powerful cinema called Purgatory – A Cinematic Exploration of the Soul. Held on March 13th & 14th 2015 at Detroit’s Tangent Gallery, Purgatory will present approximately 90 minutes of short films of introspective, emotive and/or enlightened subject matters from filmmakers worldwide. This is not an industry-focused film festival, but a tributary showcase of the often redemptive films from the filmmaker’s personal collections.
NOW FEATURING…THE PURGATORY BAZAAR – Come in early before the show and visit the Purgatory Bazaar featuring over a dozen local artists from the DAMNED Exhibition selling their own original art, prints and merchandise. Help support local artists!
Admission is $10 ($5 matinee Sat at 5pm), which includes a coupon for $5 off any $25+ purchase in the bazaar and free popcorn. This event is 18+ due to mature film and art content. A cash bar is also present for alcoholic and non-alcoholic pleasures.

In May Porto opens its doors to the monochromatic aesthetics. The Black & White - International Audiovisual Festival, which receives video, audio and photographs in black and white, will take into competition works from all over the world.
With unique worldwide characteristics this initiative grew from the need to answer to the audience's growing sensitivity to black & white specificity, leaving behind the prejudice that relates this aesthetics with works of early cinema.
But the festival shows more than videos and photos in two colours, it also encourages the creation of sound environments referring to the black and white.
Over four days, several activities related to the audiovisual world will be carried out in addition to the competitions: artist talks, screenings and extensions from other international festivals. The nights will also be exciting with a broad cultural program.
