EFS @ Repressed Cinema, Portland

If you happen to be be in Portland, Oregon, USA this Paddy's night, you will find the Irish-based contingent of Experimental Film Society gloriously misrepresenting the Nation by way of a programme of films to be screened as part of the Repressed Cinema screening series at Hollywood Theatre.

The programme:
Homo Sapiens Project (157) by Rouzbeh Rashidi – Homo Sapiens Project is an ongoing series of varied short films that provides, first and foremost, a laboratory for experimenting with cinematic forms. The range of works produced consists of everything from ‘sketches’ to fully finished and polished films. HSP (157) is a medium-length film that unleashes the sinister atmospheres lurking in an apparently idyllic rural environment.

Funnel Web Family by Michael Higgins – A prying look at the creatures that inhabit a home.

The Distance by Dean Kavanagh – A young man recalls a fishing trip from his childhood, but he is not sure if they are his memories.

Dirt by Vicky Langan & Maximilian Le Cain – A phantasmagoric mélange of live performances and elements of gothic horror, resulting in a haunting, intense and sometimes humorous portrait of Langan as performer.
