The Eyeslicervarious directors | The Eyeslicer IFFR 2018 535′
The Eyeslicer slams into your eyeballs leaving you lacerated, confused and somewhat troubled with a non-hierarchic, yet heavily curated collection of animation, video art, advertising, music videos and anything else that qualifies as a moving image. A variety TV show by the latest generation of American indie filmmakers.
House PartyReginald Hudlin IFFR 2018 100′
A 1990s classic with a lead role for rap duo Kid 'N Play. Kid wants to make an impression with his rhyming skills and organises a big house party with Play. But it all doesn’t go as planned. An infectious comedy with a killer soundtrack and fantastic style. And an afterparty in the style of the film.
Team HurricaneAnnika Berg IFFR 2018 95′
A group of teen girls refuse to conform to the world’s demands. With brightly-coloured leggings, Pikachu and plenty of raised middle fingers they steer themselves towards adulthood in a film that with its neon-green subtitles is equally unapologetic about its non-conformism.
