Martin Scorsese Masterclass in Cannes

 

 

Presenting the website

 

Purgatory


+ CALL FOR FILM SUBMISSIONS NOW OPEN +

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.
