[Nettime-nl] Jess Franco never dies [zaterdag bij WORM, Rotterdam]

in memoriam Jess Franco 1930-2 April 2013

ZA 6/
APR 2013
Open: 20:00u
Begin: 20:30u
Einde: 01:00u

A spontaneous video night in a backroom of WORM. At least three films
by Jess Franco will be screened: Female Vampire (1973) followed by
films of the visitors' choice from a broad selection of alternatives.

This Tuesday, April 2nd, film director Jess Franco died. WORM &
Cultvideotheek Next Page celebrate his creative genius and erotomanic
obsessiveness. During his career, Franco directed almost 200 Eurotrash
and sexploitation films. Often, he also acted in them, operated the
camera and composed their music. Like noone else, Franco utilized
commercial grindhouse filmmaking for artistic-economic improvisation
and the creation of his own obsessive and surreal universe.

Working under lowest budgets and greatest constraints, and constantly
on the run from creditors, his passion for good food and an expensive
lifestyle drove him into excessive filmmaking. Often, he shot three or
more films simultaneously without even his actors and crew knowing.
Join WORM in a celebration of this free spirit and one-of-a-kind

Entrance is free with a visitor's password; please mail
