MUFF 8 - SATURDAY, MAY 25, 2013

PEUT-ÊTRE VINTAGE (6029A ave. du Parc)

SatNav

4:00 p.m. | 53m00s

A series of docu-portraitures, exploring what happens when the experimental camera turns to the mysteries of the everyday: the radical artist’s process, the homely comforts of the collector, the narratives to be wrested from color postcards and Ugandan crossword puzzles. These filmmakers work with location, perspective, language, texture and performance to evoke a distinctly original sense of self and place.

Programmer: Anne Golden

The Shadow at the Bottom of the World: Nature and Industry

8:00 p.m. | 53m30s

A selection of visceral and haunting meditations on the sublime natural world and the disturbing coexistence of nature and industry. From the near-microscopic artistry of the veins in leaves, to the derelict husks of the vessels of abandoned shipyards, these films show a hunger for revelation.

Sex is for Suckers

10:00 p.m. | 60m00s

“As long as you don’t hurt me more than I like to be hurt …” A volatile concoction of sex and suburban anxiety featuring impressionistic masturbation scenes, skin-on-skin erections, sex work in silhouette, middle-aged couples confronting the dread of a suburban labyrinth under construction, eerie found footage of screaming county fair-goers, the presentational angst of chatroom sex, and Jane Fonda.

Midnight Dread

11:30 p.m. | 54m00s

The midnight program offers up MUFF’s most dread-filled mix of underground and experimental horror shorts. This year we serve up multiple unmaskings, and the darkest visions of crisis and apocalypse, featuring suffocating homes, unhinged parents, uncanny children, absurdist human puppetry, and the act of gazing as a harbinger of violence and death. “Join us” … if you dare!

Programmer: Mario DeGiglio-Bellemare
