mrs 45

In Manhattan, Thana is a timid and mute woman that works as a seamstress in the fashion industry and spends most of her idle time at home. One night, she gets raped in an alley while going back home after hours and when she arrives at home, she gets raped again by another criminal. However, she reacts and bludgeons the assaulter to his death with a flatiron. The disturbed Thana loses her sanity and uses a .45 caliber pistol to shoot men on the streets of New York. She dresses suggestively and roams the dark streets alone, wreaking vengeance upon anyone who tries to take advantage of her. Eventually, her secret life overflows into her regular life in the fashion industry.

Autumnal Sleeps + VF Pasaia

Location

Autumnal Sleeps

autumnal sleeps

In a remote rural estate house, a woman sleeps, she is alone. It’s a time not far from the dawn of the moving image, the obsessed and wealthy Dr. Epstein engineers a number of scientific experiments. He subjects his adopted children, Pete and Re-Pete, along with his darling flapper, Baby Dee, to his various scientific tasks. Things take a decidedly strange turn when Epstein makes a deal with some shifty-looking vagabonds. On doing so he opens a door to the unknown, ruptures the fabric of time and unleashes a shadow-like character bent on reducing all those he encounters to dust. Photographed on expired 35mm film with a 50year old Soviet camera, Autumnal Sleeps takes inspiration from early silent cinema. The characters and the nature of performance resemble those from a roadshow attraction while highlighting the illusory power of voyeurism and exhibitionism. Like unrestored film of early cinema, the image flickers and the colours bleed creating a psychedelic sensation as one transported through a haunting industrial score broken up with poetic interludes that examine the deeper emotions of the characters. Supported by The Arts Council of Ireland and Experimental Film Society.

JACINTO is a nine-year-old child trapped in the body of a man near his forties. He lives in Mallou, a decaying and abandoned small village in the middle of the mountains, along with his parents and his dearest pig, Martiño. It's been a long time since the last time he spoke. Something happened when he was a child that shut him up for good. Jacinto spends his days playing in the woods, going to church on Sundays, watching old vampire movies and visiting his secret spot: an abandoned Seat 127 hidden in the mountain. His mother, Maruja, adores him and makes sure he has everything he needs. His Father, Amancio, is a retired legionnaire that wants to maintain the discipline at home. And Millan, his younger brother, left the village to live in town some years ago, and only comes back when he is looking for money. They are the Becerra family.
