Purgatory III Film Exhibition

+ CALL FOR FILM SUBMISSIONS NOW OPEN +

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, DAMNED proudly presents an exhibition of powerful cinema called Purgatory. Held on March 8th & 9th 2013 at the Tangent Gallery in Detroit, Purgatory will present various short films of deeply introspective, beautifully disturbing and darkly enlightening subject matters from filmmakers local and worldwide. This is not an industry-focused horror film festival, but a tributary showcase of the often redemptive films from the filmmaker’s personal damnations. (The full film schedule is listed further below)

Purgatory - Cinema and Theatre of the Damned

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 producers of the DAMNED exhibition of fine dark art present a new exhibition of cinema and theatre called Purgatory. Held near halfway to DAMNED and Devil’s Night on May 20-22 2010 in Detroit, Purgatory will present approximately 30 short films of deeply introspective, beautifully disturbing and darkly enlightening subject matters from filmmakers worldwide. This is not an industry-focused horror film festival, but a tributary showcase of the often redemptive films from the filmmaker’s personal damnations complimented with live experimental performance art on stage during intermissions.

The Antichrist Preview: More than a Smattering of Blood

user
 Brian Johnson of Macleans.ca blog said it best that "This is not your daddy's chain-saw massacre."  Walking into The Antichrist, Danish bad-boy Lars Von Trier's latest shocker for Cannes audiences, no one expects a fairy-tale.  What you get however pushes the limits of gruesomely disturbing. [warning: spoiler alert. bigger warning: really gruesome  and pardon me but fucked-up movie] The film tells the story of an unnamed couple- played by Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbour...
