Phantom Islands @ ADIFF

Rouzbeh Rashidi's magnificent new film Phantom Islands will premiere at Audi Dublin International Film Festival next Tuesday, February 27th. I'm proud to be associated with it as one of its producers.

"Phantom Islands is an experimental film that exists at the boundaries of documentary and fiction. Directed by Rouzbeh Rashidi, with the visual intensity that has marked him as one of Ireland’s most unique and radical filmmakers, it follows a couple adrift and disoriented in the stunning landscape of Ireland’s islands. Yet this deliberately melodramatic romance is constantly questioned by a provocative cinematic approach that ultimately results in a hypnotic and visceral inquiry into the very possibility of documentary objectivity."

It would be a thrill to be included in any issue of the brilliant and inspiring Film Panic. But the latest edition of this Underground Film Studio publication, which contains my opinionated ramble A Few Thoughts on the Moving Image, is something even more special in that it gathers the research of previous issues to intriguingly propose the existence of a 'new visionary cinema' in today's underground filmmaking. The article in which editors Daniel Fawcett and Clara Pais state this case is a must-read.
