Specializing in strange, silent and superb avant garde films, the Film Maudit 2.0 festival streams works from around the world January 12 to the 14th, 2021. Organized by the LA performing artspace Highway and inspired by French avant-garde filmmaker and writer Jean Cocteau who created the original Festival du Film Maudit (literally “cursed films”) in 1949 aiming to celebrate overlooked, shocking and experimental films, Film Maudit 2.0 aims to continue this tradition of exploratory cinema.
Film Maudit 2.0 highlights this year include the U.S. premieres of Feature Films: Mathius Marvellous Shop, a Spanish/German surrealistic satire; Kriya, a magical Indian thriller, and the Los Angeles premieres of Woman of the Photographs; a powerful Japanese film about image and reality for a beautiful model; The Columnist, a darkly comic horror film from The Netherlands; A Dark, Dark Man, the Kazakhstan/France thriller just long-listed for the Golden Globes; and Darkness (Buio) the first feature film by Donatello Award-winning director Emanuela Rossi.
Film Maudit will also have a special program featuring new live music from composer Jimi Cabeza de Vaca and singer-songwriter Nora Keyes for the classic silent thriller The Unknown starring Lon Chaney.
