Bernardo Zanotta filming in UBIK
Filmmaker and artist, Bernardo Zanotta is back in UBIK!
This August our UBIK theatre will turn into an experimental film studio! Bernardo and crew will test shoot for Wild Fruits, the third part of his Cannibal Trilogy.
WILD FRUITS (in development)
A staged adaptation of Michel de Montaigne’s essay, Of Cannibals. The film oscillates between contradictory spaces of freedom and oppression, exploring the frictions between theatrical and cinematic modes, and tensions between the domestic and feral.
The film is the third volume of Zanotta’s Cannibal Trilogy: three experimental works which draw reference to the shared history between cannibalism and homosexuality.
Heart of Hunger, the first volume, won a Silver Leopard at the International Short Competition of the 71st Locarno Film Festival and is now screening in festivals and venues in Europe and abroad. The second volume, In His Bold Gaze, is currently in release.
Produced by Near/by Film
The film is supported by Mondriaan Fonds, Netherlands Film Fund and WORM
