Celluloid Diaries: BIFFF 2011

BIFFF 2011

I just got back from BIFFF 2011, the Belgian International Festival of Fantastic Films, where I did an introduction to several of their movies. I had the chance to see 25 films (Wake Wood, I Saw The Devil and Kidnapped were by far the best ones) and to hang out with several cool filmmakers who all seemed to have a passion for Belgian beer. Here are a few pics to get you in the mood :-)

  11. THE FATMAN'S FATEApril 25, 2011 at 6:16 PM

    Soul, known as “The Drifter”, is looking for his childhood friend, Horace, called “The Fatman”; he lost sight of him when he was sent to war in Iraq. He wants to find him back, because it was his only friend ever… or isn’t it rather because the Fatman owes him a few bucks? Anyway. One day, he shows up at the door of a Bureau for Private Investigations. Another man is on the Fatman’s track, a police inspector called Bob Bludgeon. He is investigating on the Fatman who could possibly be the cause of the disappearance of a hundred prostitutes in town in the last four years. It looks like one of the worst cases of serial killing worldwide. In the office of the Bureau for Private Investigations, is sitting Jocelyn, a young woman lost in a past romance, perceiving reality in a pretty distorted way, collecting pictures of nuclear explosions and looking at them with a childish fascination. Dark secrets link all these characters together. Secrets that will be revealed on the edge of a precipice.
