In our new interviews series we pick up filmmakers and artists from the festival’s fringes and get to know them on the go. In our car this episode is Edgar Pêra, one of world-cinema's most unpredictable voices.
Lovecraftland – Cine-Koncerto 3DEdgar Pêra IFFR 2019 55′
An 'ekstatic' celebration of Lovecraftian visions, darkly improvised with live music by Randolph Carter and wild VJing of Pêra-visions by Claudio Vasques.
Spectacular live act with 3D film, inspired by the writer H.P Lovecraft, with performances by Paulo Furtado, Iris Cayatte and Dominique Pignon. 'Cinekoncerts' are a key element of Edgar Pêra’s praxis – the key, actually, for it is here that many of his most important impulses meet. His passion for music, his impatience with anything looking too artistically set, plus his love for all things performance.
