International House is the film lover/friend of Cinedelphia’s place to be this Saturday. Frequent Cinedelphia contributor Joseph A. Gervasi of Exhumed/Diabolik DVD fame will be presenting the area premiere of the new, uncut 35mm print of Andrzej Zulawski’s weirdo masterpiece Possession (1981), one of the strangest films to ever win an award at Cannes. Preceding the feature will be short films by local talent including Isaac Williams, whose film Maybe We Can Go to Hollywood was recently featured on the cover of City Paper, Justin Miller, Exhumed/I-House’s resident printmaker (he did the event poster pictured), and Cinedelphia’s own, me. I’ll be debuting Video Pirates, my new found VHS footage comedy project, in the form of a ten minute-ish short entitled Horrors. It features over 150 clips from just as many artifacts from the golden age of home video. It’s brain melting stuff, kinda like Possession.
Possession screens at International House Philadelphia this Saturday, July 28, at 7pm.
