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.
Great ChoiceRobin Comisar IFFR 2018 7′
Witty retro horror in which a woman seems caught in a loop in a dated video commercial. Family restaurant Red Lobster just won’t let go. How can she get out of here?
WijRene Eller IFFR 2018 100′
In a village on the Dutch-Belgian border a group of teens pull stupid pranks, have sex and seek excitement. However, during the summer that started so languorously, the initially playful messing about turns into prostitution, power dynamics and blackmail. An intense event forces sometimes painful introspection upon the group in this modern coming-of-age drama.
